Since the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic (b. 1946) has pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form, exploring her physical and emotional limits in some of the most iconic works in contemporary art. Her body is her primary subject and medium, and she has withstood pain, exhaustion, and danger in her ongoing quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. As a vital member of the generation of pioneering performance artists that includes Bruce Nauman, Vito Acconci, and Chris Burden, Abramovic created some of the most historic early performance pieces. Of these artists, she is the only one still making important durational works.Abramovic features prominently in virtually every survey published on performance art, and her works are held in the permanent collections of many of the world's top museums, including the Musee Nationale d'Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In November 2005 at New York's Guggenheim Museum, Abramovic staged a landmark weeklong series of performances entitled Seven Easy Pieces. Her twelve-day 'living installation', The House with the Ocean View was on numerous critics' lists as the best exhibition of 2002, and she was awarded the Golden Lion at the 1997 Venice Biennale for her video installation/performance Balkan Baroque.

Wanna be shock value artist, pathetic!
Godmother of "performance art" says it all.
This woman is starved for attention, she has some sort of deep need
to Shock & Appall. Not even interesting weirdness...just pathetic attempted weirdness, contrived weirdness.
Fake weirdness, weirdness for the masses. Sad.

Yugoslavian artist Marina Abramovic (1946) has simply taken art to another level: while painters and sculptors strive diligently to recreate reality and suggest the emotions of pain and longing, Abramovic succeeds - using her own body and brilliant imagination to make us witness the unwitnessible/unwitnessable. She is the standard bearer for performance art - in many ways being the creator of this medium. In this excellent book There is a very interesting conversation between Klaus Biesenbach and Marina Abramovic that allows the reader (and viewer) many insights as to how the artist selects her subject matter and how she displays it.

Abramovic is known for the painfully self-inflicted traumas she has experienced for the sake of art and episodes from her extended (sometimes for days) performance pieces are included here. Essayists Chrissie Ives and Kristine Stiles help the novice reader to understand the importance of Abramovic's imagination, but the best way to appreciate what the artist does is peruse the generous photographs that document her performances - both of her own body and of the groups of people who willingly participate in her ventures. (For example, there is included a richly colored photograph of rows of Oriental soldiers in full dress except for the quiet exposure of each man's erection!)

For those who are new to the increasingly important aspect of performance art, this book is as fine an introduction as any on the market. One only wishes that it contained a DVD of some of the actual art pieces here frozen in time by the camera. Marina Abramovic is an artist of the highest order and one whose importance in the art world is generally regarded as the finest. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, February 10
