Marina Abramović is famous for the use of her body both adopted as a subject and a vehicle. The artist often goes through dangerous or brutal acts to examine sensations and their effect, also with the participation of the audience.
Abramović incited bodily and mental barriers to explore themes related to sensitive and spiritual transfiguration.
“If you’re a woman, it’s almost impossible to establish a relationship. You’re too much for everybody. It’s too much. The woman always has to play this role of being fragile and dependent. And if you’re not, they’are fascinated by you, but only for a little while. And then they want to change you and crush you. And then they leave. So, lots of lonely hotel rooms, my dear.„
