ugh

To be honest, I only made a tumblr to follow Noel Fielding, David Bowie, and other blogs I might like. I really don't care if you follow me or not.

but if you do, cool!

“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important

Things that I love about this picture:
1) Noel is just casually hanging out in his nana dress before the show.  Like this is his loungewear.
2) Little details: Noel’s coat on the piano and his doctor’s bag on the vanity table, Julian’s coffee/tea.
3) Pre-shave Julian, with a bit of chin scruff.  Nice.
4) The way Noel’s dress is basically backlit from the vanity lighting, and it’s not like he’s wearing a slip, so… um, nice silhouette.  I’ll leave it at that.  ;-)
