today about the installation of Maman by Louise Bourgeois at the National Gallery in Ottawa. Today’s post is a followup on his post on Wednesday, which correctly called into question the competence of bureaucrats who issued a press release on the installation of such a work after Mother’s Day – among other things.
Competency questions aside, I can’t wait to see the new sculpture. I lived about a block away from the Gallery for almost 4 years in the early 90s and the space that Maman will occupy has always screamed out for a major, large-scale installation. I’ll have plenty of opportunities to see it soon, as our new house is just 1 km away from the Gallery.
