Thursday 27 January 2005 21:30-22:15 (Radio 3)

Philip Dodd talks to nonagenarian artist Louise Bourgeois about her new exhibition, Sublimation.


45 minutes

Programme Details

When Anton Chekhov met the actress Olga Knipper he was thirty eight years old and she was twenty nine. They were married for just three years before he died, and although Olga lived until she was ninety one she never re-married. Their love affair - much of it conducted by letter, as Chekhov's poor health kept him from visiting Olga in Moscow - is the subject of a new play directed by Peter Brook. In Night Waves Philip Dodd talks to the great director about this new production and its place within the body of work which has made him famous.

Also in the programme, the sculptor Cathy de Monchaux and the art critic James Malpas assess the latest show by one of the most illustrious names in 20th Century art - the reclusive Louise Bourgeois, whose gigantic spider was the first exhibit in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall.

And there will also be a chance to hear one of the most talked about voices in contemporary poetry - Nick Laird - as his debut collection,To A Fault,  is published this month.
