Performance artist Marina Abramovic is having a retrospective of her work at the Lisson Gallery in London. Here she talks about the show and about some of the decisions that led her to create specific pieces of work. I can't that I like her work, though of course she would say that her work in not meant to be "liked", only responded to. But what she does is absolutely sincere, and beyond the intellectual inquiry into 'what does it mean to be an artist', she also creates, accidentally or not, art that does compel and move the spectator.
