Of course Marina Abramovic is another artist who made her name as a performance artist, who later became a fashion icon. Mainly because she wore a lot of designer gowns in her performances when she would sit for hours at an end, which we know decays the body. The interesting thing about this artist is that one of her quotes now works against her “Artists should never think of themselves as an idol. Fame is a side effect of one’s work.”
Its always interesting to learn things about artists, I mean she might not see herself as an idol but the art world and fashion world now she herself as an icon. A lot of people would call that selling out, some people would see that using what you have to get your message out to a lot of people, it works both ways.
