An interesting review today from The Film Reel over at Toronto Film Scene, this time for Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present. I’m not the biggest fan of performance art, but Abramovic has put together some interesting pieces in her history. Check it out.
This film splits its focus between the previous work of Marina Abramovic and her latest performance piece at the Museum of Modern Art. Titled The Artist is Present, her new performance finds her sitting in a chair at a table. The public is invited to sit across from her, but they cannot talk. All Abramovic does is sit completely still. It’s a strange way to go about things, but the reactions from guests is extremely fascinating. Whatever your opinion on performance art, The Artist Is Present should entertain. Check out the full review at the Toronto Film Scene website.
