Gina Pane (Biarritz, May 24, – Paris, March 6, ) was a French artist of Italian origins. She studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris from to and was a of the s Body Art movement in France, called “Art corporel”. Parallel to her art, Pane taught at the Ecole Leggi tutto "Gina Pane | Performance art".
It horrified me and radicalized me. Gina Pane felt the same way, and, in the spirit of the Situationists, she tried to break through that sense of people being numb to violence. But why did she often chose to perform without an audience and give us only her highly controlled document of it? She actively hurts herself. Gina Pane Little Journey, detail of photo collage created by artist, from a performance at the Pompidou Center.
We associate cutting ourselves with razors with suicide or attempted suicide, particularly for women for some reason. The extreme of sexual violence, domestic violence, or anguished isolation, have all driven women to attempt suicide, and this form of suicide is always enacted alone and often unsuccessfully. It is not a topic which is found in other feminist performance art at this time. But, looking at an early well known collection of feminist performance art, The Amazing Decade , Women and Performance Art — [v] we see goddesses, we see mid life crisis, we see body issues.
But blood is not the result of self mutilation, but of menstruation. Abramovic has the audience chose how to hurt her, Orlan underwent painful plastic surgery. In her performance, Who Can Erase the Traces which is about the violent dictatorships in her country; she carries a bowl of blood not her own into which she dips her feet, leaving bloody tracks on the street.
So Pane is unusual in her willingness to take self mutilation as a subject of her work and use it as a metaphor for political violence. Gina-Pane AzioneSentimentale, photo collage. At the same time, her actions are personal.
Azione Sentimentale , as described in a handwritten narrative that accompanies the photographs, was a tribute to her mother. As a recording played of two women reading intimate letters, Pane carefully pierced her arm with eight thorns from a bouquet of red roses, then cut her palm with razor blades. A few years later she created Partition, San Sebastiaon, San Pietro, San Lorenzo , consisting of three circles which had tangible, but highly abstracted, icons referring to the martyrdom of the three saints.
The principle of burying sun seems so pertinent to our current state of the world. Her parallel track of environmental works is barely referenced here, and this early work does not include the debilitating physical exertion of the Actions, nor the heavy philosophical significance of martyrdom, but in its simplicity, it demonstrates a profoundly creative mind and deep love of nature.
Perhaps it was this work with mirrors that led the curator to pair Pane with Joan Jonas, who frequently uses mirrors in her work. Likewise both were pioneers in the use of video. But unlike Pane, the mirroring and video is an end in itself and self referential for Jonas. It is amazing that this small display is her first in the United States.
It also has an odd conclusion which seems to be the antithesis of her highly controlled early work: a large scrawled drawing sent to Franklin Furnace for a performance in But this work, remotely assigned to others to perform, seems the antithesis of her principles, as well as demonstrating how much her art changed.
Pane failed to wake us up from our numb state, but she certainly succeeded in creating a ground breaking art form that demonstrates her own deep concern about the world. Art and The Feminist Revolution, Cornelius Butler et. Each time the work was performed, the context gave it a new meaning.

Critic Dean Daderko suggests that Terre-Artiste-Ciel is about the artist "[becoming] the connection between terrestrial and celestial realms. Rather than the landscape achieving primacy and visual power, the figure of Pane does; her physical form mediates the image.
Thus, the relative simplicity of the image is belied by the potential for multiple interpretations, all of them centering on the relationship of wo man to nature.
Set in a studio, this performance features Pane ascending a metal ladder with sharp bits on the rungs. It is documented via dozens of close-up shots of her bare hands and feet on the rungs, and a red rose clenched between her teeth. The event lasted about thirty minutes, the point at which Pane was too exhausted to go further. Francoise Masson photographed Escalade according to detailed and precise plans laid in place by the two beforehand.
The lighting, the angles of the images, the exact position of Masson's body moving around Pane were all methodically planned out. Though there was no audience for this piece, the resulting documentation was created with the viewer in mind. Pane conceived of this piece as a political statement, writing in her notes that it was ultimately about "American escalation in Vietnam" and that the "physical pain in one or several parts of the body" would demonstrate "internal pain, deep, suffering.
Moral pain. She climbed the ladder with anesthesia, which is how she hoped individuals would begin to confront the horrors of Vietnam. Climbing, as Frederique Baumgartner writes, "signified both an effort to overcome an obstacle and an affirmation of free will" and as her physical self was being awakened, so would the viewer be from "an artificial sleep.
The photographs reenact her suffering in order to "encourage identification of Pane's own body with the viewer's so that the viewer's return to consciousness would grow. In The Conditioning Pane enters a room with a metal bedframe positioned over two rows of burning candles.
She lies fully clothed atop the frame and does not move or speak. She commented later, "needless to say, the pain started right away and was very difficult to dominate. When the event was over, she stood up and softly caressed her skin, explaining, "When, half an hour later, I was able to get up, I caressed my body very gently. There was no violence; my body hurt but I could feel my touch.
In this way they recall the live [action]," as curator Jennifer Blessing writes. Critic Sam Johnson states, "the candles and the bed suggested ideas of sexual love and pleasure, the manner in which Pane positioned her body around these objects caused harm and surreptitiously threw up questions around the fixed notions of pleasure and pain. Her pain reverberates through the audience and the viewers of the documentary images, opening up a psychic space for the recognition of the universal body-in-pain.
Psyche was a twenty-seven minute and thirty-two second performance at the Rodolphe Stadler Gallery in Paris in which Pane articulated various actions on her skin. She applied red lipstick directly on the surface of a mirror so that her face would be obscured.
Then she cut the skin below her eyebrows so the blood dripped down her eyelids and cut a cruciform incision on her navel at "the location of original connection of fetus and mother," as art writer Alexandra Gonzenbach Perkins writes. Pane has flat-out said that her work would not exist without the audience, which is forced "to recognize itself as a voyeur" as Pane herself sets up the conditions of their watching.
Pane observes herself and the audience, subverting the much-theorized "male gaze" usually given primacy in the visual dialectic between woman and watcher, and, Gonzenbach Perkins writes, through the conspicuous presence of the documentary photographer, "frustrates the viewing experience" and "pushes the spectator into the realm of psychological abjection.
She stated that she elided the linguistic because "words [are] empty of their meaning" and the body was to be "written" on because "the 'body' is occupied and shaped by Society. She, as Anja Zimmermann notes, "hurts and marks her own body to destroy and re-create it at the same time. Pane performed this piece in the Galleria Diagramma in Milan, in front of an audience of only women.
Dressed in all white, she entered the gallery with a bouquet of red roses, which she offered and took back while she sat, stood, or laid on the floor. She removed the thorns and pierced her arm with them, arranging them in a neat row.
She then took a razor blade and cut into the palm of her hand. Now with a bouquet of white roses stained by her bloody palm, she repeated the offering and taking back of the flowers. As she performed all of these actions, two voices read letters between mothers and daughters, friends, and lovers.
