Founded in Paris in 1953, The Paris Review is now based in New York and showcases emerging writers and artists, introduces unpublished poetry and fiction by established writers, and presents interviews. Works of art are regularly featured, and sometimes whole portfolios or series by individual artists are reproduced. In 1992 the magazine asked Bourgeois to create such a benefit print, which also appeared on the cover of the Spring 1994 issue, No. I like the Rorschach effect here... It is like the optical illusion... Others see things in it. It can be a toi, not a moi. Bourgeois noted that this print was based on a red ink and watercolor drawing done several months earlier, at the same time she was being constantly interviewed, photographed, and filmed in preparation for the Venice Biennale, in which she represented the United States. For this print, she turned the image upside down. It is the movement of twisting and squeezing out the juice of the pomegranate. All those interviewers squeezed me to exhaustion... So this was a remark on them. This can only happen to an over-achiever... An over-achiever wants to please... Wants to please the teacher... She doesn't know how to say no. When you are in the grip of Barbara Walters, you cannot fight back! Barbara Walters is only meant figuratively here.
I received constant encouragement and flattery from my family and was never criticized. That formed a pattern for my whole life. That is different from ambition because it is a desire to please you, one person... Not to please the world.
But the over-achiever can allow herself to be manipulated by an interviewer. There is exhaustion, but then there is release if you see that your effort was not in vain... Quote cited in Wye, Deborah and Carol Smith. The Prints of Louise Bourgeois.New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1994, p. Inscribed on the verso of the source drawing: The Camel through the eye of the needle. Would you like to see what this piece looks like in your home?
