She has written on several key works by Louise Bourgeois including Maman, the late gouache drawings of fecund and sexual bodies, and works that deal with the trauma of ageing. Her forthcoming book, After-Affect/After-Image: Trauma and Aesthetic Transformation, includes a chapter on what she terms Louise Bourgeois’s ‘Geometry of Absence’.
