This work, "Ode a l'Oubli" by Louise Bourgeois is a collection of tapestries from a book. The artist chose tapestry to reflect a childhood growing up within her parents textile business and the assortment of patterns and associated feelings portrays the complex emotional relationship she, like many others, has with her upbringing. The medium serves the purpose of connecting the viewer to a moment in the artist's life, with each individual "page" reflecting a different emotional point or memory in the "story" of the artist's childhood. This couldn't be accomplished without the medium being textiles, serving the purpose of being simultaneously beautiful and evocative. The art is inherently feminist as well, with themes of fighting against the objectification of women and expectations placed upon her as a woman coming through in the individual pieces and further reflected through the physical medium of tapestry, a traditionally womanly tradition. I appreciated the art through its storytelling despite not being able to emotionally connect with it because it dealt with themes beyond my breadth of understanding mostly because of the medium and delivery in seperate pages.
