Kendall Jenner Recreates Four Iconic Pieces of Performance Art | W Magazine



Watch Gigi and Kendall’s outtakes here:
Performance art certainly has its stars in Marina Abramovic and Yoko Ono, whose groundbreaking live works have inspired many artists — and imitators. Kendall Jenner, on the other hand, is a newcomer to the art world. She’s played model and muse, but had never participated in an art project until she was invited to participate in W’s November issue. Jenner was hooked. In celebration of W’s 10th anniversary Art Issue, she dove into the dazzling history of performance art. First, she did her homework. Then she studied up on a few favorite works by Yoko Ono, Ulay and Marina Abramovic, and Yves Klein. Finally, Jenner was ready to pay homage. Her clothes were cut. She became a human paintbrush. Even BFF Gigi Hadid got entangled in Jenner’s latest obsession. Not all went as planned.

  1. When I saw the news a few days ago about the earthquake off the coast of California I thought "is this the day we're finally free of these damn people in that horrible state"? And to my disappointment, I was wrong.

  2. Lol that was stupid like high school kids playing parents. Supermodel? Didn't she just started modeling? Wow no wonder pple say it's all coz of her family poor models work hard for years to be supermodel and now this sassy kid is called the same as Tyra Banks, Naomi and all the other ones that earned thru hard work funny shit

  3. Fair play to you Kendall
    You did it your way
    To copy is the best way to get into and to learn art
    Tracey Emin and David Hockney both look over your shoulder with ecouragement
    One day without you even realising it
    You'll start to fly
    Out on your own

    Cheers – Jem
