At the centre of all her works is her own body, and with it various forms of its absence and invisibility in a context of visibility. She establishes precise transitions between a trace of her own body, an autonomous „objet d’art“ and a functional object, and in the process also addresses the tense relationship between performance and installation. Thus, she „draws“ with the twitch of her eyelashes, „paints“ with her hair, or „sculptures“ blocks of fat with her teeth, fashioning a lipstick from the crumbs she spits out – a tool that may once more serve to aestheticize the body. Nevertheless, Antoni’s point of departure mostly is the sleeping, resting, more or less prenatal body. This is the first monograph about the artist, featuring extensive documentation and discussion.
