Necklace SKY from Kiki Smith Gold plated 3 microns - 41mm

  • Kiki Smith exhibition, a first in a French institution
  • Meeting between the universe of the artist and the know-how of Monnaie de Paris
  • Limited edition : 300 copies numbered


On the occasion of her major exhibition at Monnaie de Paris, the artist Kiki Smith has conceived a unique medal-necklace. It is struck in the heart of the Mint’s workshops, testifying the lively links that the contemporary artistic creation has with Monnaie de Paris’ know-how.

Passionate about craftsmanship and studio work, Kiki Smith works the same way on original works of art or on edited products, regardless of their value. This gilded bronze medal, mounted in long necklace, depicts the pattern of a great tapestry, named Sky, realized by Kiki Smith in 2012. Impressed by the discovery of the Apocalypse Tapestries in Angers, masterpiece of medieval art, the artist began in 2011 the realization of a great cycle of tapestries about nature and cosmos. Animals - hinds, wolves, eagles or butterflies - evolve freely in an idyllic nature, alongside human figures in majesty. A few of Kiki Smith’s Work main themes can be found in the engraved motives : the decorative arts, nature and cosmos, as well as the harmonious relationship between animals and female bodies.
