Item description for Marina Abramovic: The Biography Of Biographies by Marina Abramovic & Alessia Bulgari...
While embodying all the fundamental stages of Marina Abramovic's life and work, The Biography of Biographies reveals, through numerous beautiful reproductions, an artist who has deeply affected the art of our time and who possesses an extraordinary ability to revisit and reinterpret her own story through the use of performance as a form of visual art. This new "staging" of The Biography--called The Biography Remix--is carried out in collaboration with Michael Laub, a theater director who has maintained a close involvement with Abramovic's work and shares with her a deep personal trust. The performance is not theater; it's not dance; it's not even video. Abramovic and Laub have developed a new and sometimes indefinable relationship between visual art, performance, and theater--a uniquely direct relationship that builds work of great simplicity and beauty that has the power to move, surprise, and entertain. Essays by Michael Laub, Marina Abramovic.

More About Marina Abramovic & Alessia Bulgari
Marina Abramovic pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form. The body has always been both her subject and medium; exploring the physical and mental limits of her being, she has withstood pain, exhaustion and danger in the quest for transformation. Her career began in Belgrade during the early 1970s, and her work has since appeared at The Museum of Modern Art, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and The New Museum in New York; the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and many others. She has won a Bessie, as the New York Dance and Performance Award is called, and the Venice Biennale's Lion D'Or.
