The Abramovic Method Practiced by Lady Gaga
Known for her performance artistry and most recently seen in Jay Z‘s Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film, Marina Abramovic has linked up with none other than Lady Gaga to bring awareness to the Marina Abramovic Institute. Shot over the course of a three-day retreat in upstate New York, the piece sees Gaga practicing the eponymous Abramovic Method – “a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment,” and a method that ultimately prepares participants for both performance and observation of long duration work. Certainly eye opening, the resulting piece sees Gaga performing vocal exercises, meditation and more. A full breakdown of the Marina Abramovic Institute can be perused via the establishment’s Kickstarter page while Gaga will make her long-awaited ARTPOP reveal with a performance of her upcoming single at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
