In performance, it's a monologue, and in this monologue you create so many spaces that we can project onto, so many images, one after another
Pics from Marina Abramovic Made Me Cry tumblr
Portraits taken during the MoMA's exhibit of performance artist "Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present". Abramovic sits at a table in silence, and museum guests can sit across from her and stare. Some people couldn't handle the heat.
'.. In performance, it's a monologue, and in this monologue you create so many spaces that we can project onto, so many images, one after another. What's also special is that the sound of the voice will create certain vibrations. Sometimes it's not even the word but the space in between the words, a long pause that works magic. A monologue becomes something beyond language; it becomes so strong. The moment it becomes a conversation, I think, we try to be clever, we try to construct things, and then everything falls apart again. But with the monologue, emotions come in a different way...'
This is the kind of stuff that makes me all the more sure I want to move to NYC. I love these three women especially.
Oh that and the fact Hole played there last night!
