Gallery"Peels a Tangerine”, Louise Bourgeois
  • After family dinners, Louise Bourgeois reminisces about her childhood, everyone 'was supposed to bring some kind of entertainment... We were supposed to sing, or you were supposed to recite something'. The famous artist admits that for her, this came with a sense of obligation rather than fun. In the video, a focused and serious Bourgeois demonstrates how to peel a tangerine. This was her father's 'form of entertainment'. As she re-enacts the memory of her father, Bourgeois surprises the viewers when she grabs a black marker.
