VISIONAIREFILM PRESENTS "A Portrait of Marina Abramović" by Matthu Placek. In this 3D film, Placek sets Abramović in the center of an expansive, crumbling room that will become the Marina Abramović Institute, a space serving as the performance artists legacy. Both are exposed, strong, and marked with history. As the camera pans out, figure and environment fuse, invoking the arc of the artists life, her transitional state, and the promise of renewal. Placek commissioned an original score based upon an ancient Greek song, translated and recorded by Serbian singer Svetlana Spajic and arranged by music producer Thomas Bartlett that recalls the cycle of birth, maturity, decay, and rebirth.In a culture where attention spans are short and the cell phone portrait is pervasive, Placek cultivates a moment with the sitter that lasts longer than a glance. 3D cinematography offers a means to further break down barriers between camera, viewer, and subject. The painstaking preparation and detail the process requires is felt in the intimacy of the final composition. In the absence of cuts, these one-take films encourage uninterrupted concentration from both viewer and subject, opening up the possibility for a deeper connection. "A Portrait of Marina Abramović" was made in association with the rxcentre24.com Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the National YoungArts Foundation and premiered at Art Basel Miami Beach on December 3rd, 2013.
