An illustrated talk by Claire Pajaczkowska


An illustrated talk on Louise Bourgeois's textile pieces, some of which feature in our current exhibition, Louise Bourgeois: The Return of the Repressed. Claire Pajaczkowska is Research Leader at the Royal College of Art. Researchers in the School of Material investigate the subjective process of working creatively with materials. The College brings together scientific and art thinking to develop knowledge of the creative process. Recent publications include Tension, Time and Tenderness: Indexical traces of the hand in textiles' in Bryant & Pollock eds Digital and Other Virtualities (IB Tauris, 2010); The Sublime Now, with Luke White, (Cambridge Scholars Press, 2010); Shame and Sexuality: Psychoanalysis and Visual Culture, with Ivan Ward (Routledge, 2008).
