Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio present "Honey Baby" at Locust Projects, Miami
21 November 2020 - 23 January 2021

Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio present "Honey Baby", 2013, an immersive video installation at Locust Projects, Miami 21 November 2020 - 23 January 2021.

 

Inspired by motion in utero, the video captures a folding and tumbling body suspended in a honey-filled environment. The fourteen-minute video brings its subject incrementally closer until a collapse of space presses the viewer up against the body. The sound of the video is an interpretation of what the baby would hear in utero. Honey Baby reveals a uniquely sensual relationship between subject and host.
