Marina Abramović is not dead. But that doesn't mean she isn't preparing. In a new work starring the legend of performance art, Abramović retraces her 66 years, with a strong focus on the effect of her abusive upbringing in communist post-war Belgrade. She sits down with Jian to discuss The Life and Death of Marina Abramović
(which debuts this week at Toronto's Luminato Festival), whether she thinks her new-found celebrity could eclipse her art, and why she has more stamina now than 40 years ago.
