If you haven’t seen it by now, here’s the NSFW video of Lady Gaga doing The Abramović Method (invented by New York-based performance artist Marina Abramović), which apparently involves screaming while naked because ART. No, but in all seriousness, apparently it’s supposed to connect you to the present and heighten your physical and mental experiences, so if Gaga gets something out of it, then good for her. That being said, apparently crystals play a big part in all of this, but you know who else really liked crystals? This guy. I’m just saying.
Last week at a three-day retreat in upstate New York, Marina instructed Lady Gaga in the Abramovic Method–a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment. Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI) will be the first space dedicated to practicing the Abramovic Method, which prepares participants to both perform and observe long durational work.
