COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Marina Abramovic redéfinit l’Art depuis près de quarante ans. Utilisant son corps comme médium, dépassant ses propres limites, quitte à risquer sa vie, elle crée des performances qui choquent, provoquent et émeuvent. Alors qu’elle se prépare pour l’un des événements majeurs de sa carrière, une rétrospective au MoMA de New York, Marina va enfin pouvoir répondre à la question qui lui est posée sans relâche : en quoi est-ce de l’Art ?

Marina Abramovi?: The Artist is Present follows the glamorous, fearless, controversial performance artist Marina Abramovi? as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major retrospective of her work at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world’s premiere museums is, for any living artist, the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more. For four decades, she has used her own body as a medium, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits, and at times risking her life in the process; now, with the show at MoMA, she has the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again throughout her career: “So why is this art?” A mesmerizing journey through the landscape of radical performance, Marina Abramovi?: The Artist is Present offers an intimate, engaging portrait of an endlessly intriguing woman who draws no distinction between art and life.
