Art:21 - Kiki Smith

art:21

2003

Kiki Smith's work explores the body as a receptacle for knowledge, belief, and storytelling. Smith turned the figurative tradition inside out by creating objects and drawings based on organs, cellular forms, and the human nervous system. This body of work evolved to incorporate animals, domestic objects, and narrative tropes from classical mythology and folk tales.

Kiki Smith is featured in the Season 2 episode “Stories” of the series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century.”
