‘I don’t question my impetus…I just do it and see what happens,’ says Kiki Smith
From her home in New York, which also serves as her studio, Kiki Smith talks about the ongoing experimentation that drives her art, from the provocative sculptures of the female body that made her a leading feminist artist in the 1980s, to her more recent work that draws inspiration from the nature.
‘I don’t try to set my work on any path or any direction. I really try to follow it,’ she says. ‘As much as possible I don’t question my impetus or motive for doing something. I just do it and then see what happens.’
