Janine Antoni, Loving Care, 1992

Janine Antoni

The contemporary artist, Janine Antoni.
Her work concentrates on process. Antoni uses her whole body or parts of her body. Including; mouth, hair, eyelashes, and brain as instruments and with them acts out everyday events to generate her artwork.

“I mopped the floor with my hair…The reason I’m so interested in taking my body to those extreme places is that that’s a place where I learn, where I feel most in my body. I’m really interested in the repetition, the discipline, and what happens to me psychologically when I put my body to that extreme place.”

Janine Antoni’s work Loving Care, 1992
She uses her hair as the paintbrush and ‘Loving Care’ hair dye as the paint.
