Janine Antoni

Janine Antoni

Antoni makes some interesting stuff. This picture is of my favorite piece of hers, “Saddle.” She made it by molding a raw cow hide around her body. The remaining hide still looks as if she is under it, but it is totally hollow, devoid of support except the dried skin itself. ART21 did a piece on her which I enjoyed: http://www.pbs.org/art21/artists/janine-antoni
I don’t like all of her work because often I feel she is trying too hard to make something “profound” or just making art without any real purpose or clear intention.
