AAA-AAA

Marina Abramović

March 18, 2014 – April 6, 2014

SALT Beyoğlu, İstiklâl Caddesi No. 136, Beyoğlu


SALT Beyoğlu hosts a video performance of the celebrated Serbian performance artist Marina Abramović. In AAA-AAA (1978), Abramović and Ulay kneel in front of each other, gazing into each other’s eyes. Initially, they produce the same monotonous sound, but gradually a contest develops: who can yell, scream and yowl the loudest and for the longest time? Ulay is the first to give up. When Abramović has screamed so much that her voice turns hoarse, they both resume their original position and start again. Reminiscent of Freeing the Voice (1976), in which Abramović also screamed until she was hoarse and in which the emphasis is on cleansing the body and mind, the performance AAA-AAA revolves around the relationship between two lovers – starting from an equal position, they try to outdo one other.
