Destruction of the Father—the title comes from

the name of a sculpture she did following the death of her husband in

1973—contains both formal texts and what the artist calls

"pen-thoughts": drawing-texts often connected to her drawings and

sculptures, with stories or poems inscribed alongside the images.

Alice Quinn

Bourgeois is exceedingly intelligent and droll . . . what she writes is thoroughly moving. -- Artforum
