Louise Bourgeois: Insomnia Drawings Works from the Daros Collection
accompanied by frequent bouts of insomnia. However, in her long waking nights she was also highly
productive, so that sleeplessness became an important part of her work as an artist. Between November
1994 and June 1995 she created a series of 220 sheets with drawings, sketches and poetic annotations:
the Insomnia Drawings.
The exhibition was curated by Theodora Vischer, Senior Curator at the Fondation Beyeler, with Marlene
Bürgi, Curatorial Assistant.
