Marina Abramović is talking about the role of humor in her life and work. Now, that’s not necessarily a topic you might expect to chat about with the grande dame of the performance art world. Her work is powerful, austere, often overwhelming … but funny?

“People know my work and they’re afraid to meet me,” Abramović acknowledges with a laugh. “Then they get to know me and my work and they think I’m hilarious. Put it all together and somehow it works.” She recalls one piece at the Guggenheim in New York in 2005 for which she ate a kilo of honey, drank a liter of red wine, and whipped herself raw (among other things).

last night i dreamt that i was driving through a sunflower field and the bright colours had a pleasantly intoxicating effect on me…until suddenly each flower turned into a massive tree and the flower on top of each was the same size as the sun gazing at me from above….i felt so much light and love emitting from each of these flowers…my mind was overwhelmed… and i woke up feeling as if something inside of me exploded… something that died and gave birth to something new and absolutely amazing…apprently, you can dream of ecstasy…….

thank you god.
