When I was at the Tate Modern on the weekend I bought a necklace designed by Louise Bourgeois. It has ‘ART IS A GUARANTY OF SANITY’ AND ‘LB’ on it. I really like it. Paul doesn’t like it because of the spelling mistake and he says the cord smells. I used to be a total spelling nazi where I certainly wouldn’t have bought and worn this necklace but 1) I don’t care as much these days and 2) I think its Louise Bourgeois coolness outways the spelling error!
It came in a cute little envelope and it said that only 1000 were made. So, not bad for £8.50! And I really like it because I often feel like art helps keep me sane.
