She lost it!

Performance: She lost it!
In 1991, FWM invited Louise Bourgeois to participate in an exhibition of artist-designed scarves. Inspired by the vastness of the 25-yard long print tables in the FWM studio, Bourgeois decided to make a “scarf” of enormous proportions. Printed with a story that she had written in 1947, the cotton gauze scarf would eventually wrap the walls of a large spiral exhibition space and became the central object in a performance entitled She Lost It, 1992.
