Medium

Using a multitude of mediums and materials, Kiki Smith’s collections are meditations on life and spirituality, often featuring narratives about origins and endings. For the installation Pilgrim (2007-2010), Smith created nearly 30 panels of black and white stained glass supported by steel frames, each representing a stage in a woman’s life and evoking the stations of a pilgrimage. Smith has worked extensively in glass, from the molded sculpture of entangled spermatozoa in Untitled (1989–1990) to the rose window of the Eldridge Street Synagogue (2010) in New York City’s Lower East Side.
