    Kiki Smith was born in 1954 in Nuremberg (Germany). She lives and works in New York. One of the characteristics of Kiki Smith’s work is the representation of the human body, more specifically the female body, sometimes shown from a disturbing angle, altered or fragmented and often inspired by notable gures of literature or mythology. Standing Nude represents an unclothed young woman. Child-sized, she emanates a kind of innocence, but her bodily forms are assuredly those of an adult. Her arms are slightly spread with her palms open, outstretched towards owers arranged near the work, which the artist considers as poetic fountains. A major retrospective of Kiki Smith takes place simultaneously at La Monnaie in Paris (October 2019 - January 2020).
