Kiki Smith, Seer (Alice II) 3D Model
“Seer (Alice II)” draws on the role of the seer or oracle in classical Greek mythology as well as ideas from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In ancient Greece, the seer was a revered source of wise counsel and predictions of the future. Seers were diviners who could possess spirits, and the sculpture’s white color and varying surfaces add to the figure’s mystical quality. The figure may in part be a representation of Carroll’s protagonist Alice gazing into an imagined pool of water. The idea of the pool may refer to Alice floating in a sea of her tears in Carroll’s fiction as well as the seer “gleaning the universe,” as the artist states, in the water’s reflection.
