Janine Antoni grew up in the Bahamas and was educated at Sarah Lawrence College and Rhode Island School of Design. At Rhode Island School of Design is where Antoni began to experiment with different forms of media and found conceptual art. As seen in her piece Inhabit, she uses different medias and even a person is a part of the art work. Antoni is well known for using her body as part of her art. She leaves imprints of where she has been. Like in Gnaws the viewer can see the finger and teeth marks left by Antoni.
