I’ve wanted to mention this for a while, but haven’t for some reason or the other. The latest performance art piece by Marina Abramovic is quite striking. You basically sit down with her and you stare at her. She stares back at you. The end result is that you cry. It varies from person to person, but most people who participate in this piece end up crying.
OK, so that’s probably not true. I honestly have got no idea what the percentages are. Still, there’s a tumblr blog dedicated to the people who Maria made cry.
It’s probably an incredibly moving experience. It’s too bad that I’m in Taipei and the Museum of Modern Art is in NYC.
