My name is Marina Abramović, and before I tell you my story, I want you to close your eyes with me for a few seconds.
For Marina Abramović, who has been passionate about art since childhood, painting was not enough. She was fascinated by the possibility of creating with anything, with fire, with air, with smoke, and even with the human body. So she began to perform in front of audiences with performances all over the world coming to be seen by millions.
Fausto Gilberti relies on an in-person account by Marina Abramović of the extraordinary story of her life and art, from when she was a child in Yugoslavia sitting in the kitchen with her grandmother, to the actions that have made her world famous, such as her denunciation of war at the Venice Biennale in 1997 and her performance "The Artist is Present."
In the same series, in which the artist Gilberti tells us, with intelligence and an amused look at the work of great protagonists of contemporary art, we find the stories of Yves Klein, Jackson Pollock, Marcel Duchamp, Lucio Fontana, Yayoi Kusama, Louise Bourgeois and Banksy.
