MoMA’s Inside/Out blog presents a “visitor viewpoint” on the Marina Abramovic performance The Artist is Present, in which an unmoving Abramovic invites museumgoers to take a seat opposite her for as long as they wish:
What was it like to sit with Marina?
It was kind of like being out of time. Just really interesting and filled with different emotions that change the longer you sit there.
Marina Abramovic is awesome and all, but perhaps man-on-the-street interviews are not the best way to capture her appeal.
