Kiki Smith - Her Memory

£29.99

Product description

This exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Museum Haus Esters in Krefeld and the Kunsthalle Nuremberg and features recent work by this US artist. It could, in fact, be called an exhibition in progress, since it has been enlarged at each venue before reaching the Fundació Joan Miró, which is at the end of its tour. 
Her memory is a space for reflection and poetry that continues the characteristic style of Kiki Smiths recent work, somewhere between craft and naive art , with numerous iconographic references that the artist appropriates and transforms, such as the classical representations of the life of the Virgin Mary, or more ancient mythical figures such as the sibyl and more modern ones like the suffragettes of the 1920s.
The artist expresses all this in various genres and media: sculptures made from porcelain, plaster and bronze are combined with large-format drawings, prints, stained glass, transformed pieces of furniture, painting on mirrors and mural paintings.
