Marina Abramovic Turns Viewers into Performers in “Generator”

By Emory Lopiccolo

October 28, 2014

On October 23, Marina Abramovic’s “Generator” opened at Sean Kelly Gallery in New York. “Nothingness” is the focus of Abromovic’s installation, in which she forces introspection by the audience through sensory deprivation. At the opening, guests like Klaus Biesenbach, Riccardo Tisci, and Anne Pasternak were asked to place their possessions in lockers before being blindfolded and given and noise cancelling headphones to wear while trying to walk around the gallery.

This work marks a shift away from self-performance by the artist, to audience experience. She described this sensation as “full emptiness,” and seeks to push participants towards a heightened sense of self-awareness as they are left with nothing but themselves and the energy of the room to get around.
