What is modern art? It can be many things. As a man lying on the floor and screaming incessantly - for two and a half hours. It happened at the Museum of Modern Art on Friday.
Right now the Serbian performance artist Marina Abramović has an exebition at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm.
Abramovic's exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art is known as "The Cleaner," and contains more than 120 works from her most famous performance art of the past five decades.
On Friday, the work "Freeing the Voice" was displayed, consisting of a man lying on a white mattress on the floor and screaming incessantly for 2.5 hours.
- The performer screams until he loses his voice, writes the museum on Instagram.
The performance is a part of the 'Freeing series' in which she tries to purify her body and mind and attempts to switch off her consciousness. Abramović created the performance in 1975 when she said goodbye to her background in Belgrade, the Museum of Modern Art writes.
The museum has published a film of the artwork. By clicking on the film you can hear a man screaming and screaming and screaming and screaming.
Duration: 2,5 h. Enjoy, lol!
