Nanas, mères, déesses, les femmes de Niki de Saint Phalle : L'album de l'exposition

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Qu'elles soient Nanas, tout en courbes, éclatantes de couleurs et de vie, dansantes, délurées, expression d'une totale liberté, ou femmes-maisons, immenses sculptures habitables, quintessence de l'abri maternel ; qu'elles soient Mères dévorantes, portant collier de perles, robe à fleurs et sac à main, ou qu'elles soient Déesses dont le corps composé d'un conglomérat d'objets hétéroclites semble avoir surgi d'un chaos primordial, les femmes tiennent une place prépondérante dans l'oeuvre de Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002). Elles sont l'expression d'une révolte profonde et entière qui a conduit la jeune fille de bonne famille, qui posa un temps comme mannequin pour des revues de mode, à refuser le destin conventionnel qui lui était réservé, et à prendre très tôt une place de premier plan dans le monde de l'art. A travers ces différentes figures féminines, qui sont à la fois les sujets et les objets de son art, Niki de Saint Phalle inaugure un questionnement sur le statut des femmes qui fait d'elle l'une des premières artistes féministes. Elle dénonce les rôles étroits dans lesquels la société enferme les femmes, tout en montrant la puissance qui les habite, leur vitalité, leur créativité. Elle appelle de ses voeux un monde où les femmes pourraient être des héroïnes, et choisit d'en devenir une. "Je n'accepterais pas les limites que ma mère tentait d'imposer à ma vie parce que j'étais une femme. NON. Je franchirais ces limites pour atteindre le monde des hommes qui me semblait aventureux, mystérieux, excitant." Et Niki de Saint Phalle inventa le Nana Power !

Excellentes pages, léger bord et usure de la couverture.

They are Nanas, all curves, vibrant colours and life, dancing, delirious, expression of total freedom, or women-houses, huge habitable sculptures, quintessence of the maternal shelter; whether they are devouring Mothers, wearing beaded necklaces, floral dresses, and handbags, or that they are Goddesses whose body made up of a conglomerate of disparate objects seems to have arisen from a primordial chaos, women hold a prominent place in the work of Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002). They are the expression of a deep and entire revolt that led the girl from a good family, who was a model for fashion magazines, to refuse the conventional fate reserved for her, and to take an early leading place in the world of art. Through these different female figures, who are both subjects and objects of her art, Niki de Saint Phalle inaugurates a questioning on the status of women that makes her one of the first feminist artists. It denounces the narrow roles in which society encloses women, while showing the power that lives in them, their vitality, their creativity. She calls for a world where women could be heroines, and chooses to become one. "I would not accept the limits that my mother was trying to impose on my life because I was a woman, NO, I would go beyond those limits to reach the world of men that seemed adventurous, mysterious, exciting." And Niki de Saint Phalle invented the Nana Power!

Excellent pages, slight edge an cover wear.
