As an artist that is currently beginning in performance art, Marina Abramovic (the grandmother of performance art) has been of huge impact on me. Then I watched this DVD, and wow, what a moving, motivational, inspirational artist. This lady is full of power and emotion within her work.
The Artist is Present, was a performance piece that Marina performed at MOMA, New York, with 5 of her historical art works being performed and a new piece by Marina where the artist is literally present, where she engages with her public on a one to one just connecting through pure eye contact.
I'd recommend this to anyone, particularly students with an interest in performance art! Very happy with my purchase!
