This advocate of humanity disguised as an artist, has for decades invoked reaction to STILLNESS. Throughout the years she has told her audience that they can do anything they want to her and she would not react. The social experiment which has served as modern art-is telling in that the gradations of human emotion, psychology, and temperance is revealed merely by sitting absolutely still and gazing into the eyes of another individual.
There is something so reverent and powerfully visceral about silence. The art that has made Marina Abramovi infamous is an indeliable reminder of just how impactful the human spirit influenced and shaped by psychiatry, can be when directed towards all other humanity.
