Some of the pieces on display, such as Azione Sentimentale (1973), include the photographic documentation of performances in which Pane is seen to enact carefully planned and deliberately controlled self-wounding. In these works, Pane explores the relationship between mark-making on the body and scarring of the landscape, and seeks to demonstrate both the extreme fragility of the body and the reality of suffering. In conjunction with this, the subject matter and symbolic gestures featured in many of her pieces articulate her engagement in late 1960s feminism, identity politics and environmentalism.
