Niki de Saint Phalle: Joy of Living
02 May 2020 00:00 - 06 September 2020 00:00
The exhibition Joy of Living brings together sculpture, works on paper and jewellery that demonstrate Saint Phalle’s enthusiasm for the natural world. It features original works on paper depicting animals, such as Gorilla (undated) and Monkey with Child (1995); bird sculptures from the mid-1970s; and works that reference the biblical story of the serpent as seducer, such as Snake Mirror (1998). Saint Phalle found strength and recovery in creativity and nature after a troubled early life.
