Janine AntoniBiography: Janine Antoni is a woman on the edge; of art. She is what one might call a "bad girl" in the art world. Penny Arcade, a performance artist, has a theory about the art world: "They say they want 'bad girls,' but they don't really want bad girls, because when you're bad you tell the truth and people don't like it when you tell the truth" (Blackwood). Antoni is definitely telling the "truth" in her works of art. Antoni is noted for her performance and installation pieces which have challenged the status quo of the art world by using "feminine" mediums, such as lard, hair dye, and chocolate, as metaphors to explore female sexuality, to challenge the trappings of femininity in society, social packaging, and to challenge our patterns of consumption and consumerism...
