Janine Antoni

Saddle, 2000

Full rawhide

27 x 32 x 79 inches (68.58 x 81.29 x 200.66 cm)

Saddle is a full raw cowhide draped over a mold of Antoni’s body.  When the material hardened, the mold was removed. Like a ghost, the cowhide holds the memory of the artist’s body.  When confronted with the object one feels both the absence of the artist and of the cow.
