Den VITA#8. "Corps de body / Niki de Saint Phalle"
NIKI de SAINT PHALLE. b. 1930
”Curves & Mosaïc”. St Phalles who had no formal training, explored the various roles of women, creating in 1963 a series of sculptures protesting stereotypical societal roles for women, a child bearers, devouring mothers, witches, and prostitutes. A critic observed "insistence on exuberance, emotion and sensuality, her pursuit of the figurative and her bold use of color have not endeared her to everyone in a minimalist age".Shop: 18 x 18 cm
Den VITA project was to work on single, white, second hand objects and be inspired by women artists, crossing generations and artistic bransch. Some activists, some early pioneers, some simply demanding to be recognized for their work. But according to me, all feminists despite rejection of the term. Each object is one of a kind & handpainted!
