I dont know if this is the right place to put it... feel free to move it to another thread


SO I COMPLETELY FEEL IN LOVE WITH

NIKI DE SAINT PHALLE

YOU KNOW HER? im sure some of you do....

she grew up in the US in the 30's and a "quite normal" life, maried with 18 and moved to paris with her young family. at 23 she had a psychological breakdown after which she became obsessed with being an artist. im sure you know some of ther "NANAS" corpulent women with overaccentuated female curves. she made a lot of stuff and expressed a terrible anger towards her father who molested her when she was 11 towards her mother and society towards herself.. but she turned it all into artistic enthusiasm creating these wonderful, expressive, relieving and empowering works. then i also absolutely love how she talks and what she sais..
so here i have found two short biographic documentaries on youtube if you like to see it:

Introspection: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-784OPlEWYU (i really dont like the commentator here but the pictures are great and the facts interesting too)

Short Movie Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxSbfqcgjtg
Short Movie Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMhEn_vXTvw

also check out the TAROT GARDEN:http://www.nikidesaintphalle.com/ this is a place i DEFINITELY want to go ! it was her idea to create a garden with huge sculptures that represent all those symbolic and metaphorical images of the tarot (strength, fool, sun, death, emperess, magician,.. ) i like this page because you dont only see the images but also a short text where she describes the statue. i really like her interpretation.

SO THERE YOU GO. ENJOY. I FIND HER SO INSPIRING.
