A Harmless Woman

Louise Bourgeois

There are oh-so many reasons to love Louise Bourgeois' work: it is good to look at AND wickedly funny & insightful. I just ran across this in a Christie's catalog, a Harmless Woman.

Why harmless? She has neither legs to walk on, nor arms to fight, nor a mouth to speak, eyes to see, nor a brain to think. She is a fuckbot, pure and simple.

Of course, she's not a woman, either. She's just a mound of acquiescent flesh.
