Eleanor Antin Characteristics


Eleanor Antin has been a leading performance artist since the '70s using fictive personae and expanded narrative to explore the idea of the self, especially the expanded notion of female identity as developed in feminist writings. Her performances feature a recurring set of "historical" characters, past lives invented and acted out by Antin, including Eleanora Antinova and Nurse Eleanor of the Crimean War.
