Happy birthday Kiki Smith!
“I like that feeling when you’re making art, that you’re taking the energy out of your body and putting it into a physical object. I like things that are labor-intensive: you make a little thing and another little thing and another little thing, and eventually you see a possibility.”
Watch a clip about Smith from @art21, and view her works in MoMA’s collection.
