Marina Abramovic is known as ‘the grandmother of performance art’. I knew her name,but only a little of her work,until a friend sent me a video clip – an extract from one of her performances ( link below ).
Read a little about her before watching it,as this will help you to understand the background. The clip will probably make you cry,so get a tissue ! My correspondent has recently been separated from her loved ones,after moving to a new city,so I understand why the film moves her.
It’s worth having a look at Marina Abramovic’s Wikipedia entry first,to understand what a tough upbringing she had. This certainly influenced her pained and masochistic performance art,and whatever you think of her sanity her unflinching honesty is involving.
