The world’s best/most successful/most famous/most significant performance artist Marina Abramovic, and Matthew Akers, director of the documentary “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present,” chatted with Celebs.com’s Elliot Kotek at the Celebs.com Studio at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

The film chronicles the lead-up to Abramovic’s major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the institution’s first such exhibition for a performance artist.

Later that night, Abramovic hosted a “silent party” at Sundance – undoubtedly another first. The rumor is that Robert Redford said it was the best Sundance party he’d ever attended.
