I posted a link to this in Facebook but since Barbara Pavone‘s piece Lady Gaga gets totally naked to practice the Abramovic Method and help raise funds – dayum, the girl looks good! has now gone a bit viral, I will post about it here in the blog as well.
As regular readers here know, I am quite the fan of Marina Abramović and her work (see http://briandavidphillips.net/2012/07/09/marina-abramovic-the-artist-is-present/ for a bit on one of my absolutely favorite performance art pieces). A few celebrities have also fallen in love with Abramović and her work and the latest, Lady Gaga is putting her body and mind behind her endorsement by participating in a few events and allowing herself to be filmed practicing the Abramović Method while nude (hint, this isn’t just a publicity stunt as the method is a process of deconstructing identity although having Lady Gaga starkers is probably helping the kickstarter campaign quite a bit). See http://briandavidphillips.net/2010/11/12/ladygaga_orgasm/ for a bit more on Gaga and her orgasmic ecstatic trance past.
In this video, you can see Gaga practicing the Abramović Method both alone and with Abramović herself.
Of course, the elements of the video that are capturing the most press are the nude bits.
The nudity is striking and even important in terms of the work and of Gaga’s relationship with herself and her audience, but that’s not everything. She’s pushing herself in intriguing ways such as a marathon reading – we’re talking ten hours – of a science fiction classic.
You can and should get more information at the kickstarter page at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/422090958/marina-abramovic-institute-the-founders. Plenty of more videos there.
Of course, since we’ve got you here . . . here’s the animated gif floating around.
For a worthwhile video summary of the Abramović Method, head over to the Mission statement page at http://www.marinaabramovicinstitute.org/mission/the-abramovic-method.
