 Marina  Abramovic  Thumbnail


Marina Abramovic, is a celebrated, spirited and controversial artist who, since the beginning of her career, has pioneered performance as a visual art form in a quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. Marina has long tested the relationship between the audience and the ego of a performer. Her last exhibition/retrospective in New York, staged at the Museum of Modern Art, was "The Artist is Present," a 736-hour and 30-minute static, silent piece, in which she sat immobile in the museum's atrium. Marina's considers each public appearance an experiment and she never rehearses.
