« A thoughtful feminist artist, a strong work. Do not miss it! »

The new exhibition at the Monnaie de Paris is likely to make people talk this autumn. Kiki Smith, a committed visual artist, wrongly described as ultra-feminist and with an eminently disturbing and political work, is in the spotlight for her first major monographic exhibition. Exceptional in its scope, this unpublished exhibition brings together nearly a hundred works, from the 1980s to the present day. Through the major themes of the artist's work, including the human body, female figures and symbiosis with nature, the exhibition reveals the great diversity of Kiki Smith's practice, which explores many media: bronze, plaster, glass, porcelain, tapestry, paper and wax. Kiki Smith's work is thus similar to a journey, a quest for the union of bodies with the totality of living beings and the cosmos. This exhibition, curated by Camille Morineau, which pays particular attention to women artists, also shows the coherence of a work that is part of the obsessive representation of bodies, mainly the female body and its relationship to the other. Camille Claudel or Louise Bourgeois are never very far away when you go into Kiki Smith's work in depth.
