Me on SATC #Repost @everyoutfitonsatc ・・・ 🔪MARINA ABRAMOVIC IS A SAMANTHA🔪 No one can pull off an austere all-white outfit quite like a performance artist in the midst of a 16 day durational piece. Only minimalism is appropriate under such circumstances, and girlfriend really knocked it out of the park with her crisp white separates and Siouxsie Sioux-inspired hairstyle. But fashion aside, we want to note that this scene was based on real performance piece by the legendary Marina Abramovic titled “The House With the Ocean View”. In 2002, Abramovic performed the piece for 12 consecutive days without eating or speaking. She bathed, slept, and used the toilet in full view of the audience. The piece was later replicated on SATC with her permission, although she declined to personally appear in the episode. She also just happens to be close friends with our homegirl @kimcattrall. The two interviewed each other for a 2013 V Magazine feature where Abramovic stated that Samantha was her favorite character because, “You don’t give a shit about anything.” Cattrall also participated in her 2010 MoMa performance piece “The Artist is Present”, where audience members took turns sitting at a table across from Abramovic, who sat in silence. Many attendees were moved to tears by the experience. Their portraits were taken, including Cattrall’s, which we have included here. Needless to say, we fucking LIVE for the art references on Sex and the City and we are devoting several posts to the topic in the coming days. Stay tuned... 🎨 (S6/EP12) #TheArtofSATC #MarinaAbramovic #KimCattrall #Minimalism #PerformanceArt . . #actor #actorslife #actress #sexandthecity #fashion #tv
