Stories (in one form or another) is the theme linking the four artists profiled in Part 1 of four: Kara Walker, Kiki Smith, Do-Ho Suh and Trenton Doyle Hancock. Walker explores her African-American heritage in silhouettes that are at once genteel and macabre. Smith, a sculptor, often deals with death. "We were like the Addams family," she says of her childhood. So-Ho Suh, a native of Korea, is concerned with space, individual and collective. One project is a "house" he made of transportable fabric. "I want to carry my home with me all the time---just like a snail," he says. And painter Trenton Doyle Hancock looks to combine "comic-book narratives with the history of abstraction" in his mythical creatures. Filmmaker John Waters introduces the film.
