In an interview with ARTnews, Marina Abramovic said, “My mother never kissed me or told me she loved me, because she didn’t want to spoil me, and now I have to do so much to deserve attention.” Her latest spotlight-grabbing piece, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic, is director Robert Wilson’s reimagining of her tough upbringing in the former Yugoslavia and the path she took to become the controversial artist she is today. Billed as a “quasi opera,” the work stars Abramovic (as both herself and her chilly mother) opposite the award-winning chameleon Willem Dafoe; Antony provides the music.
