The Artist is Present: the slyness of the visible


In this article I intend to reflect upon a specific experience: my participation in a performance created by Marina Abramović called "The Artist is Present", occurred in March, 2010 at MoMA - Museum of Modern Art - in New York City. Through the development of this reflection various aspects will be examined, among them the question of presence and its relationship with sight. When the territory in question is associated with the Performative Arts, very often sight can generate deceptive implications, it can function as a sort of obstacle for the emergence of experiences.
