In a recent video for W Magazine, Kendall Jenner recreates four iconic performance art works: Yoko Ono’s Cut Piece, Yves Klein’s The Anthropometries of the Blue Period, Saburo Murakami’s Passing Through, and Marina Abramović and Ulay’s AAA-AAA. Each of Jenner’s recreations very loosely follow the original performances—but of course, Jenner manages to undercut the importance and seriousness of all four artists. This, of course, comes about a month after Kanye West made his artistic debut at Los Angeles gallery Blum & Poe.
Apparently Jenner has been channeling her inner artist in preparation for her first ever original work of performance art. Says Jenner: “I think my soul is being an artist…So I’ve been thinking about my first piece and I’m very inspired. I just want to show my perspective on life. I’ve got a title for the piece and I feel like that’s always important, right? I’m thinking: The Selfie.”
