Marina Abramovic


These crystal chairs are from marinas institute, they are designed for ‘man and his spirit’. Marina used them as a means to teach her ‘method’ to people which in this case involved learning to sit still for hours at a time. The visitor would put on a white lab coat, jump in a chair and put on head phones that block out all noise. The crystals are situated above or behind their head and underneath the chair legs so the are not touching the floor. Marina said that crystals ‘have an incredible power that had been used for healing for so long.’ 

Marinas use of crystals is very sumbolic and creates a beautiful piece. I think using crystals in art is very powerful as well as beautiful.
