Marina Abramovic, the "grandmother of performance art," has fearlessly used her body as a canvas for political and cultural commentary for nearly four decades. By making the performer (as well as the audience) both physically and mentally uncomfortable, Ms. Abramovic's works have sparked discussions about the limitations of the human body, human consciousness, human relationships and, of course, the value of performance art.
It's taken her 40 years, but performance artist Marina Abramovic says she's learned to relax the iron self-control that's at the heart of her craft.
Performance artist Marina Abramovic plans to build a $15 million center in upstate New York devoted to the research and production of duration-based works of art lasting from six hours to several days.
She said she chose the city of Hudson because of its historic significance as the birthplace of the Hudson River School art movement and proximity to other cultural venues, including the Center for Performing Arts at Bard College and Dia Beacon.
In a phone interview last week, Abramovic said the architectural firm OMA will transform a former tennis center in Hudson, N.Y. _ about two hours north of New York City _ into a 23,000-square-foot facility featuring ramps and specially designed lighting and furniture, including chairs equipped with wheels for visitors who fall asleep during the lengthy performances.
