AlbumFever to Tell

Marina Abramovic by James Franco
The presiding deity of performance art
Marina was someone I studied in my contemporary art history class at UCLA. She had already made her mark with her indelible performance pieces, especially Rhythm 0, which had her presenting an array of items (a rose, a pen, a scalpel, honey, a feather, a gun and a bullet) and allowing the audience to do anything to her body with them. Eventually someone put the bullet in the gun, placed it in her hand and pointed it at her head. The violence of the audience was revealed. In The Artist Is Present, her seminal piece at MOMA, she revealed the sadness of the audience as she sat across from them for nearly three months and absorbed their pain. Marina most powerful is Marina most simple, Marina as Marina. I love the simple Marina, the powerful Marina, when the artist is present within her.
I trust Marina to carve the artist out of her celebrity and use her celebrity to bring what she stands for into the here and now, looking straight into the eyes of all of us, strangers still, but courageous, curious, inspired, creative participants afterward.

Woman Dressing Her Hair - Pablo Picasso

(via artgods)

There’s no story here.
I let you flirt with me
because I’m lonely.
I let the dinner party go on
as long as I can and then I pull the tablecloth out from underneath
us until I’m the only
dish that hasn’t fallen to the floor.

I don’t think I have it in me,
the fairy tale you’re talking about.
The one where I call you back
and sound like the princess,
all hopeless and helpless in love.
Most times I’m satisfied
with just being wanted,
because I’m still my own and
you still can’t stand it and God,
it tastes good,
the air on the way back to my place, alone as ever.

Give me a feeling. Any feeling.
I’ll chew it up and spit out
something pretty,
tie the tenderness with my tongue
and hand the cherry stem to you,
all mangled and gorgeous.

I talk so much for someone who
has nothing to say.

Yeah, I’m full of it.
Yeah, I’ve already thought about
fucking you in every single
place we’ve walked by and no,
I’m not gonna do anything about it.
But I will call you at three in the
morning and kiss you
until you’re sure something
else is going to happen,
then I’ll say goodnight, belly full
of satisfied.

I’m actually vicious.
A sliver of me is stone and that’s the
only place I let you touch because
it’s the only place that won’t
remember you.

So, okay, maybe there’s a story here.
Maybe it’s not the one I thought
it was,
but at least it’s something.
