She Makes Random People Cry (20 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       29 Apr 2010       22958       19

They stare at her for several minutes or hours and… start crying. All these crying portraits were taken during the MoMA exhibit “The Artist Is Present”. Why couldn’t people handle the heat sitting across Marina Abramovic in silence? I have no idea, but the result is very impressive.

I know who she is! She is serbian performance artist who is BIG in New York now (she even appeared in Sex and The City episode). She is really extreme, for example she once, and I'm going with Wiki here:
To test the limits of the relationship between performer and audience, Abramović developed one of her most challenging (and best-known) performances. She assigned a passive role to herself, with the public being the force which would act on her.
Abramović had placed upon a table 72 objects that people were allowed to use (a sign informed them) in any way that they chose. Some of these were objects that could give pleasure, while others could be wielded to inflict pain, or to harm her. Among them were scissors, a knife, a whip, and, most notoriously, a gun and a single bullet. For six hours the artist allowed the audience members to manipulate her body and actions.
Initially, members of the audience reacted with caution and modesty, but as time passed (and the artist remained impassive) several people began to act quite aggressively. As Abramović described it later:
“The experience I learned was that…if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed.” ... “I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”

Still, cool :D
