Janine Antoni: At Home in the Body
Janine Antoni works in a variety of mediums including sculpture, photography, installation, and video to capture the human condition with a physicality that speaks directly to the viewer’s body. Transforming everyday activities such as eating, bathing, and sleeping into art, Antoni’s primary tool has always been her own body. She has chiseled cubes of lard and chocolate with her teeth, washed away the faces of soap busts made in her own likeness, and used the brainwave signals recorded while she dreamed at night as a pattern for weaving a blanket the following morning. She has had major exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and S.I.T.E. Santa Fe. She has been awarded a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellowship and the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award.
