Performance art
Quote:
In art, performance art is a performance presented to an audience, traditionally interdisciplinary. Performance may be either scripted or unscripted, random or carefully orchestrated; spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned with or without audience participation. The performance can be live or via media; the performer can be present or absent. It can be any situation that involves four basic elements: time, space, the performer's body, or presence in a medium, and a relationship between performer and audience. Performance art can happen anywhere, in any venue or setting and for any length of time. The actions of an individual or a group at a particular place and in a particular time constitute the work. Wikipedia.

I really love this kind of art, so I want to know more. I think the most famous artist of this art movement is Marina Abramović, she is the "grandmother of performance art".

Marina Abramović & Ulay - Rest Energy (1980)

The artists held a taut bow with an arrow loaded and pointing at Abramovic’s heart, with only the weight of their bodies maintaining the tension. Microphones recorded their rapidly accelerating heartbeats.

Chris Burden - Shoot (1971)

He was shot in his left arm by an assistant from a distance of about five meters.

unfortunately I don't understand french, is there any way you could expand what the above piece is about, as it looks interesting! Also thank you Perickles for all your contributions to this thread, as performance art is something I shall be exploring later on in the spring, so all this research is great

Piège pour un voyeur (Trap for a Voyeur), first version in 1969. This is about a human cage of white neon lights at Galerie Patricia Dorfmann, ensnaring the body of the hostage in the strict geometries of Minimalist sculpture. Michel Journiac was one of the founders of the Body Art movement in France and as a gay man activist, he attacked society's stereotypes, defended those who existed outside of daily society, and challenged traditional moral values.

Fashion Victims by Yolanda Dominguez
Quote:
Now we all know and understand the term ‘fashion victim’, but performance artist Yolanda Dominguez gave a whole new spin on it with her new piece entitled ‘Fashion Victim’. The piece is a response to the recent disaster that happened in Bangladesh when more than 1.000 textile workers including many women and children died after their workshop collapsed. Yolanda placed women on Madrid’s Gran Via shopping street under rubble and a selection of fashion accessories she called “an appeal for responsible production and consumption, both for people and the planet”. Though provocative – it is obvious these type of performances need to happen to create some kind of awareness. Visuals are fantastic.

when an idea is getting too literal, there really is no need to execute. I don't want to point out which that is/are, but this type of art sometimes can be very very superficial.

Sometimes I think that when the art work is too conceptual you aren't able to represent what you want to say in a clear and understandable way, because you have no a good power of synthesis, which is a talent that everyone wants to have. Of course, it depends of the context, for example in this case of the fashion victim, is a good way to say what she wants to the mass. Arts are not only for snobs in a museum.
