About the Movie
Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her limits - and at times risking her life in the process - she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life; a major new retrospective of her work, taking place at The Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world's premier museums is the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more; it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: "But why is this art?"
Great documentary about a brilliant artist.
I already own this and have watched it a million times. Marina is an amazing artist and a charming and funny human being. She reveals how deeply lonely we are in modern society by simply giving people the opportunity to reach out to someone else. Her relationship with Ulay is a touching and tragic love story and to see her confront her past and emerge like a Phoenix from the ashes is marvellous. Her childhood in Montenegro and her career over the last 40 years is captured in this beautifully paced documentary. A must see for art lovers.
Brilliant documentary about one of the most exceptional artists of our time. Poignant, insightful, brave. Production is superb & overall the insight offered into Marina's life, history & art is priceless. Emotive undertow was profound.
Compelling and moving, the final artwork had me enraptured.
