“I had experienced absolute freedom—I had felt that my body was without boundaries, limitless; that pain didn’t matter, that nothing mattered at all—and it intoxicated me.”

In 2010, more than 750,000 people stood in line at Marina Abramović’s MoMA retrospective for the chance to sit across from her and communicate with her nonverbally in an unprecedented durational performance that lasted more than 700 hours. This celebration of nearly fifty years of groundbreaking performance art demonstrated once again that Marina Abramović is truly a force of nature.

The child of Communist war-hero parents under Tito’s regime in postwar Yugoslavia, she was raised with a relentless work ethic. Even as she was beginning to build an international artistic career, Marina lived at home under her mother’s abusive control, strictly obeying a 10 p.m. curfew. But nothing could quell her insatiable curiosity, her desire to connect with people, or her distinctly Balkan sense of humor—all of which informs her art and her life. The beating heart of Walk Through Walls is an operatic love story—a twelve-year collaboration with fellow performance artist Ulay, much of which was spent penniless in a van traveling across Europe—a relationship that began to unravel and came to a dramatic end atop the Great Wall of China.

Marina’s story, by turns moving, epic, and dryly funny, informs an incomparable artistic career that involves pushing her body past the limits of fear, pain, exhaustion, and danger in an uncompromising quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. A remarkable work of performance in its own right, Walk Through Walls is a vivid and powerful rendering of the unparalleled life of an extraordinary artist.

Review:

An Amazon Best Book of November 2016: She’s nuts. There will be devotees devouring Walk Through Walls who will revel in the genius of performance artist Marina Abramović. But for those approaching this frank and fascinating memoir not knowing much about her, that would be an understandable assessment. After all, Abramović has willingly had a loaded pistol pointed at her head, been maimed by strangers, she’s lost consciousness after laying in the middle of a gas-soaked star set aflame (and that’s just for starters). It’s an odd career trajectory considering Abramović’s antithetical upbringing under the hem of a tyrannical mother who insisted she be home by ten at the tender age of...24. Danica Rosić was seemingly ashamed of her daughter’s artistic endeavors, and yet when she died, Abramović discovered that she had stashed away newspaper clippings about her performances—holey clippings where she had carefully cut out her daughter’s often nude (and sometimes mutilated) visage. You might be tempted to excise the more disturbing aspects of Abramović’s narrative as well, but like a gruesome car crash, it’s tough to look away. And if you find yourself cringing, well then, that’s the point. One of the main purposes of Abramović’s art--of her life--is to learn how to confront and transcend the uncomfortable—the physically and the emotionally painful. You may come away from Walk Through Walls thinking, yeah, this lady, she cray. But there is something to be said for someone with the audacity to run towards what the rest of us are only too happy to flee. --Erin Kodicek, The Amazon Book Review
