Janine Antoni: Incarnate
Saturday, September 13, 2003–Sunday, February 1, 2004
Janine Antoni transforms the seemingly inconsequential and routine acts of living into tools for making art. She gives form to visceral experience. Incarnate brings together a selection of her recent works, exploring the way our mothers, both in a literal and ecological sense, form our existence. Using cowhide and cast silver, and by alluding to traditional Madonna and child imagery, Antoni teases out the beauty and darker emotions imbedded within these relationships.
