Marina Abramovic: performance, film, VR
A lecture by University of Amsterdam art historian Marga van Mechelen on the body and personae in Marina Abramović’s performances. In her latest VR artwork Rising currently showing at Eye she is an avatar. Some of Abramović’s films will be screened during the lecture.
Virtual Reality productions are an increasingly important element of the contemporary film experience. Eye has created a new programme, Xtended, to focus on VR. In Xtended, you’re not confronted with the flat surface of a film screen. You move around virtually in 3D through a designed space that surrounds and immerses you on all sides.
