Marina Abramović will mentor 12 Australian performance practitioners throughout our 30th Kaldor Public Art Project, Marina Abramović: In Residence.
The artists were hand selected by Abramović to participate in an intensive Artists Residency Program where they will explore the Marina Abramović Method
and develop their own performative practice through research, workshops, discussion and debate.
In a series of short clips, we hear from Marina Abramović on a range of subjects, from her time in Australia in the early 1980s to her funeral plans and love of icecream, and of course about her upcoming project at Pier 2/3 this June.
More films will be added weekly so stay tuned.
