Janine Antoni, 2000
A few weeks ago I went to visit the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, and checked out the museum while I was there. This piece caught my attention. It is a silver casting of family silverware, a negative impression of the artist's mouth, and her mother's hand holding the spoon.
"The work relates to Antoni's ongoing exploration of personal history, family relationships, and bonding and separation as equally important elements in forming one's identity."
