A collection of works produced by French-American artist Louise Bourgeois in the final years of her life.

The display includes notable pieces from the 90s, such Couple I – a stuffed fabric work addressing the complex relationship between men and women which Bourgeois made from one of her own blouses, as well as socks and tights.

It is joined by a series of 16 drawings, A L'Infini, which she produced between 2008 and 2009 and Cell XIV (Portrait), where Bourgeois uses three heads of fabric sculpture to represent the multiple and contradictory aspects of a single individual. The artist's final vitrine, Untitled, is also featured. 

Shown alongside other important loans from Tate, The Easton Foundation and private collections, the display reveals her fascination with the mystery and beauty of human emotions.
