Marina Abramović and fashion

In recent years Marina Abramović has brought her practice closer to the fashion world through her collaborations with her close friend, Givenchy’s artistic director Riccardo Tisci.

Marina was interviewed by Donatien Grau Another Mag/ "An Intellectual Fashion/ Marina Abramović"

"In the 1970s I was never interested in fashion. I thought that to be fashionable was to be a less good artist. After I walked the Great Wall of China, which was a great achievement in my life that changed my career, I decided that I didn't need to prove anything to anyone anymore – not least whether or not I was a good artist. I had a secret desire to engage with fashion which I never admitted to myself, so the first time that I ever had serious money, I bought a Yamamoto suit. I felt so good in it, and without guilt! After that, I openly started being interested in fashion and tried to create my own style using different elements of what was fashionable at that moment. Since I met Riccardo Tisci, I have become a faithful admirer of his clothes and I really feel the best in them."
