Marina Abramovic

I was introduced to another amazing artist who has worked with meat..Image 

“In 1997 she performed Balkan Baroque at the Venice Biennale. It involved her scrubbing clean 1,500 cow bones six hours a day for four days and weeping as she sang songs and told stories from her native country” (Sean O’Hagan, Guardian UK).” retrieved 3/4/14

Marina Abramovic created a series of works titled ‘Art must be beautiful’

I love the title and the image an awesome controversial thought provoking image. I like the way the title shouts a statement. Im not sure I want my statement to be shouting.. but I quite like the idea of it being clear like this. Giving the viewer a good understanding.. but then I also like to leave some to the viewers imagination I quite like seeing others un-tainted ‘takes’ on my work. Its very valuable.
