Kiki Smith, Realms, New York: PaceWildenstein, 2002 [edition 2000]

An accordion publication that accompanied Smith's exhibition "Realms" at the PaceWildenstein gallery in New York from March 14 - April 27, 2002. This small book is given over to depicting the interaction between a woman and a wolf and it would seem to be an eroticized version of the Little Red Riding Hood story - the poem on the inside cover reinforces this reading as well. Either way there's an uneasy tension that permeates this booklet that left me curious about the final outcome of this human and animal interaction.

Individual pages 5" x 3.5".  10 pages double-sided and fully extended 3' 6".
