quote unquote / Louise Bourgeois on Art

“That’s why artists repeat themselves — because they have no access to a cure. People sublimate and turn to art because, first of all, they would like to be sexual but they are afraid, and second, they feel guilty. In this day and age it is easy for people to be separated from sex. And the need of artists remains unsatisfied, as does their torment.”
