Niki de Saint Phalle


Niki de Saint Phalle (October 29th., 1930 – May 21st., 2002 Neuilly-sur-Seine, France)

Niki de Saint Phalle, who was born in France, was a misunderstood revolutionary.  Her work firmly reflected a world view greatly influenced by an abusive childhood.  Her father sexually abused her and her mother was often to remind her that she was an unwanted child. 

She worked within the Feminist movement and the ‘Nanas’ is one of her most famous pieces, however it is ‘Hon’ which features here.  This controversial installation was set up in the Musset of Stockholm, in 1966, under much secrecy, and closed again only a few days after its inauguration.  It featured a woman, created by a larger woman, which could be accessed through her vagina. Inside, there were several rooms which featured works by male artists repositioned in feminine, provocative key.
