Synopsis

We can make art from nothing, we can make work from dust, from just being present in the space, so why not also our bodies?

Artists Marina Abramović, Shirin Neshat, Sigalit Landau, and Katharina Sieverding have all incorporated their bodies and the bodies of others into their work, from performances as an act of ritual and liberation, to transcendent video art, to enormous works of complex composite imagery that adorn cityscapes. Each act creates a vital way to address the violence of the past and, in doing so, also the present.

Evelyn Schels' documentary presents these artists and their differing works to us, then steps back so we can draw our own conclusions.

 

"Using the body as her medium, Abramović has company." - Observer
