Kiki Smith (2024)

„Tapestries protect your mind and your home.“

US-American Kiki Smith (b. 1954) is one of the most influential feminist artists of her generation.

While her early work is characterised by the social debates of the 1980s, such as those about AIDS, she later focused intensively on the female body. In the early 1990s, she began to focus increasingly on the environment and nature as a space worth of protection. The harmony between humans and animals beings as part of a cosmic whole plays a decisive role here. Developed in close collaboration with the artist, the show brings together 54 works. At the heart of the exhibition are her impressively designed jacquard tapestries. These colourful large-format works, some of them are interwoven with silver threads, invite the viewer on a visual journey of discovery. They combine the timeless with our immediate present in a poetic, fairytale-like clarity. The exhibition is complemented by sculptures, drawings, copper intaglio prints, photographs and collages that reveal the complex creation process of Kiki Smith's multifaceted work.
