“I have very strange dreams now from which I wake up in complete horror. They repeat during different periods of my life. I can’t explain them. They have something to do with the disturbance of an order that is not supposed to be disturbed.”
Marina Abramovic is a New York-based Serbian performance artist. Active for over three decades, she has recently begun to describe herself as the “grandmother of performance art”. With an often pronounced mystical sensibility, Abramovic’s work questions the performer/audience relationship and explores the limits of the body. Through gesture and ritual she examines the nature of consciousness.
