The Artist is Present: Marina Abramović’s new documentary

She has remained one of the most enduring, pioneering and subversive performance and installation artists of the 21st century. I just watched her new documentary, The Artist is Present, which covers the history of her working life as an artist, her relationships, and childhood experiences, and the entire documentary is based on her latest exhibition that ran at the MoMa in New York, entitled The Artist is Present.

Marina sat for three months in the same chair in the gallery and the public was able to join in the exhibition by sitting across from her at a table (which was later removed) and staring in to the artists eyes. Some people cried, some laughed, some took off their clothes. his documentary brought me to tears as I was witness to Marina’s incredible life story and her astonishing works. I watched one person after another file in to sit silently across from the artist and the sheer power and emotion of her work is something you can’t miss. If you don’t know who she is, don’t worry. She’s a discovery worth making.
