   Artistic Approach

Kiki Smith, Lying with the Wolf and Wearing the Skin, 2001
Ink and pencil on paper
183.5 cm x 223.5 cm

"For Kiki Smith, human and animal bodies are the subject of an impetus and compelling examination of self and nature.

Using materials ranging from bronze to papier-mache, she creates sculptures and other works that reflect a personal approach to the public debate over identity and gender issues."

( National Museum of Women in the Arts)

She is integral to the 'Return to the body' movement of the late 1980s, an artistic practice that responded to the prevailing rationality of Minimalism and Conceptual art.
