Kiki Smith: Squatting The Palace
American artist Kiki Smith is renowned for print and sculptural works that explore issues of feminism and the female body. This documentary offers a glimpse into Smith's artistic process as she creates a series of prints, sculptures, and furniture for an eight-room art installation called "Homespun Tales: Stories of Domestic Occupation," which was exhibited in Venice, Italy, as part of the 2005 Venice Biennale. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film at times seems like a comic opera. It's no surprise that it all comes together in the end."
‑ Cate McQuaid, Boston Globe
"Kiki Smith: Squatting the Palace studies the frizzy-haired, multi-tattooed woman as she works in her East Village house preparing sculptures, paintings, drawings and furniture for an eight-room installation at a palace in Venice."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"An edifying documentary about how one of today's hottest artists creates her memorable work."
‑ Ariella Budick, Newsday
"In perpetual, almost pathological motion, Smith fills her Lower East Side home with sketches, sculptures, and people in preparation for an ambitious installation in Venice."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice
"Ms. Smith's vision is sketched on a napkin, and her approach to executing it is something like an act of surrender."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
