Marina Abramovic Turns Dinner Into Theater

Marina Abramovic
Set B

Consider your next dinner party performance art. Artist Marina Abramovic‘s porcelain dinnerware collection for Bernardaud — dubbed Abramovic Method: Misfits for the Table because of the varying shapes and patterns — reflects Abramovic’s personal history and her desire to ritualize our meals. Set A includes a bred plate adorned with her recently discovered Montenegro family crest, a dish shaped like a red Communist star (omnipresent symbol from her youth), a golden serving platter that represents the sun (counter to the star) and a standout dinner plate ornamented with her lips covered in honey and gold leaf from her 2009 show “Gold Mask.” Set B is similar, alternating the crest on the dinner plate and the lips on the bread plate with a silver serving platter that represents the moon, and a white star-shaped dish that hints at her fascination with the universe. Or forgo the dinner party, and hang the pieces for the art that they are. Each set is a limited edition of 2,000, and can be found exclusively at momastore.org.
