A macaron (/ˌmɑːkəˈrɒn/ mah-kə-ROHN; French pronunciation: [makaʁɔ̃]) is a sweet meringue-based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder and food coloring now come with a taste of Marina Abramovic.
Artist Marina Abramović knows how to get people talking about her. Yes, her latest collaboration is with Macaron. You will now be able to taste Marina Abramovic flavored cookies. According to ArtNet, the project is in conjunction with luxury dessert brand Kreëmart and Abramović wants her audience to really taste her, or "eat her." Here is a proof video
"My grandmother, early morning, making coffee," Abramović said. "The smell of coffee was everywhere in the house. Then I remember the smells of fresh basil, thyme, cardamom seeds, and exotic smells from the trips I took later on and remember exploring volcanoes and waterfalls and remember this feeling in the early morning when I see the line of the sea just meet the ocean, and ocean meet the sky. All of this, in this macaron of me."
"My work is most of the time immaterial because performance art is immaterial, it is conceptual and limited by time," she continued in a statement. "Kreëmart's work in the medium of sugar is completely immaterial too, because you consume it, you eat it, and it's gone. What is left behind is the memory of what you eat."
Marinarons are to be sold at Harrods in London and plan to release in New York, LA, Miami and Tokyo. ArtNet says that "much like the artist herself, [the macarons] aren't for everybody."
