"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
PREVIEW: Janine Antoni in Season 2 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" (2003)
Janine Antoni's work blurs the distinction between performance art and sculpture. Antoni transforms everyday activities such as eating, bathing, and sleeping into ways of making art, such as painting and sculpting. Themes in her work include mortality, desire and the body.
Janine Antoni is featured in the Season 2 episode "Loss & Desire" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
