Janine Antoni is a contemporary artist working in performance art, sculpture and photography. Antoni’s work is process-driven, and relates deeply to the artist’s body as both subject and mode of production. She has made drawings with her eyelashes, used her hair as a paintbrush, cast full body self-portraits in soap, and slept in a gallery for 28 days. Her seductive, culturally loaded materials—chocolate, cosmetics, the artist’s own body—reveal an interest in identity, power, and representations of the feminine in contemporary society. Her work is constantly evolving, pushing the boundaries that separate art from everyday life and objects, while simultaneously challenging her viewers’ assumptions about the world around them.
