Conversations with Marina Abramović

New York based, Serbian born Marina Abramović, grandmother of Performance Art, explores relationships between performer and audience, limits of the body and possibilities of the mind. In one of her most famous and daring performances [Rhythm 0, 1974], she put herself at the mercy of an audience for 6 hours, during which the audience could use any of 72 objects to manipulate her body and actions. She discovered that an initially gentle audience could kill you, and then run away.
