Marina Abramović Art
Who is Marina Abramovic?
Marina Abramovic (b. 1946, Belgrade) is a Serbian conceptual and performance artist who began her career in the early 1970s. Active for over four decades, her ground-breaking and controversial works centre on the themes of body art, feminism and endurance art. Abramovic currently lives and works in New York, and her works are held in collections around the world, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, and the Reina Sofia National Museum in Madrid.
The "Grandmother of Performance Art"
You might have heard of Marina Abramovic's art during one of her most moving (and terrifying!) performative exhibitions where she allowed her audience to participate by using an array of items, such as roses, feather boa, but also loaded pistol and knives, on her in any way they wanted. While some of the audience's actions were innocent, others were absolutely frightening, leaving her in blood and tears at the end of the performance.
“The function of the artist in a disturbed society is to give awareness of the universe, to ask the right questions, and to elevate the mind.” Possibly the most famous performance artist in the world, Marina Abromovic's art works at extremes, pushing mental and physical boundaries, combining time, experience, viewer participation and artwork to create award-winning exhibitions.
