Marco Anelli: In presence of Marina Abramovic


In 2010, the Museum of Modern Art in New York presented The Artist is Present, an exhibition featuring the Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic. In the middle of the museum’s atrium, the artist sat in a chair and invited visitors to sit across from her for an indefinite period. She sat there every day—716 hours and 30 minutes in total—facing more than 1500 people, whose presence completed the work. The Italian photographer Marco Anelli had the excellent idea to take portraits of each of the participants, their expressions being photographically more interesting than the artist’s. His intense photographs show faces full of emotions, some with dripping tears and in deep thoughts. They investigate the power of such an interaction, and Abramovic’s talent for holding her audience for a day.
