Gina Pane (1939-1990) was a French artist of Italian origins working in installation and performance. Gina Pane is best known as one of the few female body artists of the 1970s to use her body in her work in extreme ways, including self-inflicted injuries. Producing further works using sculpture and photography, the body remained Pane's focus as she began making minutely prepared and documented actions in which each gesture was permeated with a ritual dimension. Her use of the body as artistic tool reveals vulnerability both in an actual and literal sense.
