Montano’s “14 Years of Living Art”

To extend the theme from yesterday’s posts, integration of art into life is becoming increasingly popular among performance artists and young individuals. Here’s half of an amazing project by Linda Montano called Fourteen Years of Living Art. The results are recorded on an extension of her main website: here.

“7 YEARS OF LIVING ART is a time-based, endurance/performance which focuses the mind in a directed way so that art becomes a vehicle for meditation. Wearing one color of clothing each year that corresponds to the color of a specific Chakra (Hindu energy system), I was able to stay attentive to my intention. That is, to train the mind not to wander, shop around, or buy into the millions of distractions that impinge minute-to-minute.”

If you haven’t already, make sure to submit to our Spring Edition of Fiant Verbas. The deadline is April 15th. We are a literary and artistic journal, dedicated to displaying new work throughout the United States and abroad.

Artists often integrate their work into their life. This can range in extremity, as Maria Abromavic seeks to do in her meditations and performance art; her work requires incredible preparation and strength of will. Others seek to integrate their life lessons and spirituality into their work. Beth Cavener believes that within each of us, there resides animal instincts and primitive roots.

How do you integrate life and art? Show us by submitting to our Spring Edition of Fiant Verbas.
