Summary:
Artist Kiki Smith has produced an astoundingly varied body of work that deals powerfully with the political, social, philosophical, and spiritual aspects of human nature-especially in the way they relate to women. Smith's earlier works reflect the social discourse of the 1980s, particularly focusing on death and the AIDS epidemic. She later turned to issues of feminism, abortion rights, and animal rights. This comprehensive book provides an overview of Smith's artistic development, focusing on her sculpture, from the early 1980s to the present day. Images of her radical, unflinching work reveal an artist who is not afraid to explore subjects such as the human body or a society's archetypes. Filled with the beauty, vitality, and charm that are the hallmarks of Kiki Smith's art, this book urges viewers to think and feel. Exhibition: Haus der Kunst, Munich Germany (02.02 - 03.06.2018).
