Performance Art

We debate often about performance art.  I just read this quote and thought it shed some light on the subject from the “Grandmother of performance art”:

“In theater, the actor is playing somebody else; he’s playing his emotions. The theater knife doesn’t hurt, and blood is just a color. In a performance, everything is real: real emotions with real situations, and real person.” – Abramovic

    I’m so excited to see her segment of Art 21 this season! I have a performance art post that I’ve been meaning to post as well. Maybe I’ll get to that tonight.
