About 奇奇 史密斯

奇奇·史密斯(生於1954年,紐倫堡,德國)自1980年代便以關於人與自然的多科學的實踐而出名。她用各種各樣的材料不斷的擴大和發展作品,其中史括在世界各地有眾多的個展,其中包括超過25次博物館的個展。她是美國藝術暨文學學會和美國文理科學院的成員,也獲得了多個獎項,包括2012年由希拉里·克林頓授予的國家藝術勳章,2010年在帕切斯藝術學院獲得的納爾遜·洛克菲勒獎,2009年年的愛德華·麥克道威爾獎章和2000年的斯考希根建築獎,還有其他的獎項。在2006年,史密斯被時代雜誌評選為「塑造世界的100人」之一。她是紐約大學和哥倫比亞大學的兼職教授。史密斯在1994年加入佩斯畫廊。 奇奇·史密斯的創作是對生活和靈性的冥想,經常以關於世界起源與結局的敘事性為特色 。她的掛毯作品採用拼貼佈局,融合了各種技術和媒體,閃光,彩色鉛筆,水彩和大量印刷材料,在異質紋理的景觀中穿越切割的尼泊爾紙。而每種混合媒體再最終編織成一個紡織品,將穿梭在掛毯中不同種群的動植物群之間產生潛在的精神聯繫感。大教堂是一個近三米高的敘事性視覺作品。掛毯是由Magnolia Editions與藝術家之間多年的對話所形成的提花織機創作 。史密斯的掛毯富含寓言,將藝術家對身份,死亡和女性解放等主題的對抗與神秘生物和裸體形態的視覺隱喻混為一談。

Press Release

  • Kiki Smith: Murmur

    New York—Pace Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Kiki Smith. Encompassing etchings, cyanotypes, woodblock prints, and sculptural works in bronze, aluminum, and silver, the exhibition underscores the truly multidisciplinary approach to art-making that Smith has pursued throughout her career. Embracing the power of figurative art, Smith’s recent work continues to advance her investigation of both the resonances and dichotomies between the natural and spiritual worlds. Kiki Smith: Murmur will be on view from March 1 to 30, 2019 at 537 West 24th Street, with an opening reception for the artist held on Thursday, February 28 from 6 – 8 pm. A full color catalogue will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.

    Drawing together approximately 20 works made over the last three years, Murmur marks the gallery’s eighth solo exhibition dedicated to the artist since she joined the gallery in 1994. The pieces span from the intimate to the large-scale, the delicate to the robust, and represent elements from the human, animal, and celestial worlds—an eagle resting in pines, a woman’s bust seemingly molded into a chopped tree, a series of shooting stars, a cloudburst, bees, oak leaves, birds, a spiraling nebula, and more. Notable highlights include Wave—a large-scale bronze sculpture, treated with a dark black patina, evoking the power of the ocean under the vibrancy of a night sky; and a nearly seven foot tall bronze sculpture, representing a woman’s face, surrounded by and infused with symbols of language and nature.

    The exhibition envelops the viewer—sculptural pieces will be wall-mounted, hung from the ceiling, placed directly on the ground, and presented on plinths; works on paper will be installed in gridded groupings across the gallery’s walls; and, the rear room will be adorned with a large bronze fountain set on a woodland-inspired bed of stones. Running throughout the works in the exhibition are ideas of genesis, decay, rebirth, and the eternal cycles and ties between seasons, nature, and human life.

    This year, Smith will be the subject of several major museum exhibitions worldwide. Originally organized by Haus der Kunst, the retrospective exhibition Procession will be presented at the Sara Hilden Art Museum, Finland, from February 8 – May 12, 2019, and at the Belvedere Museum, Vienna, Austria, from June 6 – September 15, 2019. An exhibition of Smith’s prints will be presented at Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Munich, from February 14 – May 26, 2019; and she will be the subject of a solo-exhibition, What I Saw on the Road, at the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Pitti from February 15 – June 2, 2019.
