Marina Abramovic delivers a monologue about her past
Marina Abramovic collaborated with videomaker Charles Atlas on this striking work of autobiographical performance. A that traces a concise personal chronology. This brief narrative history, which references her past in the former Yugoslavia, her performance work, and her collaboration with and separation from Ulay, is intercut with images of Abramovic engaged in symbolic gestures and ritual acts. Closing her litany with the phrase “time past, time present”, Abramovic invokes the personal and the mythological in a poignant affirmation of self.
