Kiki’s Memoirs

Model, singer, writer, and painter Alice Prin, known as Kiki, took part in this artist group of Dadaism, which has bohemian lives and has radically changed the understanding of art. With her charismatic and strong character in the art environment of that period, she became the muse of dozens of painters, writers, photographers, and directors and supported their productions. Despite the difficulties of being a woman, Kiki has managed to stand upright on her own feet and become the face of avant-garde art. This Stopmotion animation is inspired by Alice Prin’s memoir book “Kiki’s Memoirs”.
