Louise Bourgeois Earrings, 2019

Dimensions 80 x 80 mm
These earrings celebrate one of the great figures of modern and contemporary art, Louise Bourgeois (25 December 1911 – 31 May 2010) Although she is best known for her large-scale sculpture and installation art, Bourgeois was also a prolific painter and printmaker. She explored a variety of themes over the course of her long career including domesticity and the family, sexuality and the body, as well as death and the unconscious.
Dublin born artist Ciarna Pham, who works under the name Kiki Na Art, is the creator of these unique pieces of handcrafted jewellery and wall pieces. The stunning one of a kind pieces are made for the individual and no two pieces are ever the same. To compliment the Desire exhibition at IMMA, Kiki Na Art has produced unique pieces based on women artists in the museum collection.
