“Janine Antoni employs an amalgam of mediums including performance, sculpture, photography, installation, and video. Her body is both her tool for making and the source from which her meaning emerges. She carefully articulates her relationship to the world, giving rise to emotional states that are felt in and through the body. This takes on a physicality that speaks directly to the viewers’ body, unleashing a deeply felt empathetic response.

Antoni’s work has been included in exhibitions including the Venice Biennial, the Whitney Biennial, the Johannesburg Biennial, the Istanbul Biennial, the Kwangju Biennial, the SITE Santa Fe Biennial, and the Prospect.1 Biennial in New Orleans.
