Marina Abramovic created for ART CAPSUL a wholistic systemology for a sustainable relationship with garments and the universal cycle that can be worn each day. The wearer of her energy clothes is instantly transformed to an extension of her performance work which the artist has described as being the "overalls of this century." The seven different colored jumpsuits, inspired by the seven phases of the moon and referencing Parachute silk in its materials, form one artwork piece altogether. Each jumpsuit contains seven pockets and in each pocket is placed a small magnet. The placement of the pockets denote energy points of the body. Noting a correlation and interesting phenomenon on how colors influence our behaviors and emotions, Abramovic has developed this unique concept, coordinating each day of the week with planetary coloring as follows:

DAYS, PLANETS & COLORS:
Monday- Moon Color, Dark Blue
Tuesday- Mars Color, Red
Wednesday- Mercury Color, Green
Thursday- Jupiter Color, Yellow
Friday- Venus Color, White
Saturday- Saturn Color, Deep Purple
Sunday- Sun Color, Light Pink

About Marina Abramović

Working in a wide range of media, Marina Abramović is best known for her provocative performance works, employing her own body as both subject and medium. In an early performance entitled Rhythm 10, Abramović repeatedly stabbed the spaces between her fingers with a series of knives, effectively testing the relationship between the mental and physical, and reinterpreting the concept of rhythm. Between 1976 and 1988, Abramović collaborated with German photographer and performance artist Ulay to create performance works that explore such binaries as male and female, active and passive, through the execution of repetitive, exhausting, and often painful actions. Abramović has continued to work independently since then, staging performative works that increasingly demand viewer involvement, such as her MoMA retrospective, “The Artist Is Present,” in which museum visitors could sit down across from Abramović at a table and engage in a silent exchange with the artist.
