Description
Summary:"The pain of Marina Abramovic's return to her Serbian and Montenegrin homeland, torn to pieces by war, was perhaps more difficult to support than all the purely physical pain she suffered in her early performances. Her Balkan series of video installations and performances created in the period from 1997 to 2005, mostly in Yugoslavia, confront us with the gaps between hope and total destruction, with heroism, idealistic passion, human warmth, and almost unbearable static situations." "In her latest work, Balkan Erotic Epic, Abramovic creates new, surprising perspectives on archaic rituals that used erotic powers to influence fate and fortune - some of which were still practiced in some Balkan areas. These powerful images talk to us about the disavowal of ancient practices, and about something buried deep in our consciousness."--BOOK JACKET.
