This piece is called "Ode à I'Oubli" by Louise Bourgeois. The piece was composed of hand-sewn and stitched cloth. Seeing the piece in person was important because it was easier to see the close details in the fabric and the small parts. Seeing the details greatly allowed me to appreciate it. I liked how the cloths were a mix of patterns and written phrases. The phrases were very straight forward but were subtly surrounded by light colored patterns. It made me very interested to understand what the artist was trying to convey.
This area of the museum was very interesting it is atrium in the middle of museum. Within the atrium there was a small sculpture in the middle. It was interesting because of the use of the space it allowed for a lot of light to enter the room. As well I think placing a smaller sculpture vs a larger one made the room seem a lot larger.
This painting is called "El Fantasma" by Pedro Figari. This piece appealed to my core value of family. In the piece it appears to be family together or mostly the women of the family. The woman in my family are very close. Seeing the family combined in the room in what seems in daily life. It brings me a sense of home and belonging. Seeing the piece right away I knew this to be my piece for values.
The name of this photograph is "A thanksgiving prayer to the Mixe god Kloga in gratitude for the good harvest, Oaxaca, Mexico" by Sebastião Salgado. I think this photograph represents a freedom of religion and of expression. I think it represents being free to express. Since it is a real life photo I think it conveys the life of real people and their freedoms. It also show that everyone worships in their own way. And that all forms of worship are important.
