The art of Kiki Smith (born 1954) confronts what it means to be human. Her sculptures are often feminine figures that become personifications of sexuality, trauma and abjection. This monograph contains an essay by Margot Norton examining Smith’s fascination with the human body and its ability to project emotional vulnerability.
The DESTE Foundation’s 2000 Words series gives insight into the work of some of today’s most exciting contemporary artists through the vantage point of the Dakis Joannou Collection.
