Gina Pane
Gina Pane (1939-90) established an international reputation for her performances in the 1970s as one of the most radical artists in Europe. This exhibition provides the first opportunity in England to consider the breadth and depth of her work. In the performances, or Actions, where the artist used her body as material and expressive language, Gina Pane frequently pushed herself to her physical and psychological limits. These Actions have a legendary status with artists using the body as part of their practice. The exhibition examines the relationship between Pane's Actions and her practice as a whole, which included painting, sculpture, drawing and photography. It reveals her as an artist whose highly developed aesthetic sensibility led her to communicate ethical and philosophical concerns through the making of objects and carefully choreographed performances. She investigated, with delicacy, precision and formal control, universal human themes such as love, pain, death, spirituality and the metaphysical power of art.

After the Arnolfini exhibition a selection of work from this show will be displayed at Tate Modern.
A collaboration with John Hansard Gallery, Southampton. Funded by the Henry Moore Foundation, Association Française d'Action Artistique and the Arts Council's National Touring Programme.
A catalogue will be available in the bookshop price £10.
