Marina Abramovic - Various

It's certainly no use to present this important art performancer who will leaves a strong iconography in art history through the various images shot during her life. She sure made the audience react, although I'm less certain that her message has been clear for everyone but any evidence in art kills it instantly (in a way, that's what meant Jean Cocteau when he said that the will to show destroys art). She's far from the stereotype of the scandalous, provocative and asocial artist and finally became a sort of superstar of the margin. But I'm not expert enough to know exactly where to place her in the contemporary art picture so let's only appreciate her charisma power throughout this selection.
