The Maman Sculpture

For 13 weeks the Maman sculpture of the Louise Bourgeois exhibition has been standing guard outside the Moderna Museet in Stockholm.

Since the exhibition started, and photos of this sculpture started to appear, I intended to go visit to see the sculpture in place. It is such an interesting form. Fascinating.

I didn’t go into the Moderna Museet. I stayed outside in the park to take pictures of the Maman sculpture. I’ve actually not visited a museum in Stockholm since the entrance stopped being free, which it was for a while. Entrance fees might become free again if the politicians will decide so. Until then, no museum visits. Too expensive.

So, I visited Friday as the exhibition ended on Sunday May 17th. Yesterday the Maman sculpture was taken down for transfer to Museo Picasso Málaga where the exhibition will reside June 15 – September 27 2015.

So now she is gone.

I also looked at the other sculptures in the park outside Moderna Museet. Something I’ve also planned to do for a long time. I will show you what in a later post about it.
