BLANKET STATEMENT — Abramovi&#263’s Magnetic Fields

by Samantha Anne Scott

Coinciding with her fast-approaching career retrospective at MoMA (March 14 – May 31, 2010), preeminent performance artist Marina Abramovi&#263 collaborated with nonprofit art outreach organization More Art to produce the “Energy Blanket”, which contains 14 strategically placed magnets that correspond to the body’s energy meridians. Of the limited-edition blankets, which will carry a price tag of $460, Abramovi&#263 states:

“In my work, all the transitory objects have one thing in common:

they do not exist on their own; the public must interact with

them. Some objects are there to empty the viewer, some to

give energy, and some to make a mental departure possible.

The energy blanket is one of those objects whose function is

to give energy to the user.”
