the painful pursuit of beauty on Flickr.for this piece I was inspired by one of Marina Abramović’s early performance works.  with a brush in one hand and a comb in the other, she works on her face and hair, while repeating the sentence:  art must be beautiful, artist must be beautiful.  her voice betrays that she is in pain, and her face also makes it abundantly clear that she is hurting herself.  a truly thought provoking piece making a statement on the duality of beauty and pain reflected in art. 
Art must be beautiful, artist must be beautiful
performance:
“I brush my hair with a metal brush in my right hand and simultaneously comb my hair with a metal comb in my left hand while doing so I continuously repeat art must be beautiful, artist must be beautiful until I hurt my face and damage my hair.
duration:  one hour
