“Gina Pane” Vernissage
Galerie Kamel Mennour12.10.2012 #art
A central figure in body art in France, Gina Pane marked the 1970s with actions with a strong symbolic charge. From the emotion aroused by the wound to which she subjected her body in front of the “anaesthetized” spectator, to the passionate critics who surrounded her radical gestures, Gina Pane is a myth.
Kamel Mennour presents to us for the first time the memories of this great liberated artist who will have caused as much ink as blood to flow, through a series of works drawn from the different periods of her work. Less painful: the opening to which the gallery owner invited us last Friday evening.
