Compared to the artist I’m going to aura-read for you today, our last one was practically boring. Remember this guy? Odd Nerdrum. Aura Reading of a Kitch Painter.

Well today I’ll do energetic literacy research on a certain performance artist nominated by Blog-Buddy ISABELLE at her Comments 78-85. Here’s how Marina Abramović was described at our contest about What Could Possibly Make This Person Tick?

Marina Abramović was born in Serbia in 1946. She grew up under the Tito dictatorship. She described her upbringing as “military-style control.” Her mother would wake Marina up in the middle of the night to do military training.

Later Marina Abramović went to art school where she got involved in performance art. This included:

  • Cutting a big star in her belly
  • Throwing herself into walls
  • Whipping herself.
