I am not a fan of "performance art" and have never attended a presentation of any sort. But I read a profile piece in "The New Yorker" about Marina and her New York museum show and was interested to know more about her.
This documentary is quite compelling with Marina discussing her background and art. There are interesting conversations with collaborative artists and curators and critics about her ouvre.
There are early pieces of hers feraturing self-mutilation that are not appealing. But the viewer comes away with a respect for the "art warrior" and provocateur.
I must confess that there were moments featuring the New York show encounters that brought tears to my eyes.
