Love and Attachment

I went again to the Louise Bourgeois exhibition at the Tate Modern yesterday. The moment I saw this sculpture I thought of the Buddhist concept of attachment and non-attachment.

give, take

Please read Beth‘s post of the same name, including the comments.

I have long been wondering how best to illustrate the idea of non-attachment visually since Alistair first told me Joseph Goldstein’s explanation which completely revolutionised the way I conceived of the notion.

Now I’ve found the perfect pictorial co-relative, and don’t have to write an exegesis since by the serenwebity of the internetting Beth and her commenters have done it already!

  1. Terrific bit of synchronicity. Thanks for this, words and image, and for getting me over to Beth’s pronto.
