Seven Easy Pieces
In the early 1970s Marina Abramovic pioneered the use of performance as
visual art. With Seven Easy Pieces (November 9-15), Abramovic reenacts
seminal performance works by her peers dating from the 1960s and '70s.
The project is premised on the fact that little documentation exists
for most performances from this critical early period; one often has to
rely upon testimonies from witnesses or photographs that show only
portions of any given piece. Seven Easy Pieces examines the possibility
of redoing and preserving an art form that is, by nature, ephemeral.
Abramovic will perform the following works on seven consecutive nights,
from 5 pm-midnight, in the Rotunda:
Wednesday, November 9
Bruce Nauman, Body Pressure, 1974
Thursday, November 10
Vito Acconci, Seedbed, 1972
Friday, November 11
VALIE EXPORT, Action Pants: Genital Panic, 1969
Saturday, November 12
Gina Pane, The Conditioning first action of Self-Portrait(s), 1973
Sunday, November 13
Joseph Beuys, How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare, 1965
Monday, November 14
Marina Abramovic, Lips of Thomas, 1975
Tuesday, November 15
Marina Abramovic, Entering the Other Side, 2005
Seven Easy Pieces is dedicated to Susan Sontag.
