Jacquard tapestry

Edition of 10
A radically inventive artist known for her sculpture and printmaking, Kiki Smith produced eleven monumental tapestries over a six-year period, continuing her interest in the relationship between humans, animals and nature. Each tapestry is based on paper collages made from salvaged pieces of the artist’s prints and drawings that were then photographed, printed to scale and re-worked until the composition was finalized. The ultimate image is formed entirely of warp and weft threads using a double jacquard loom.

The tapestries have been shown in solo exhibitions at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence; Haus der Kunst in Munich; Belvedere, Vienna and are currently on view at the Monnaie de Paris.
