Marina apparently mirrors through her body the limits of humanity itself. That can equally break down and cry as in "The Artist is Present", where she sat for 736 hours inviting spectators to take turns in sitting opposite her (MoMa 2010) as well as become fiercely aggressive and abusive if given the possibility to do so, which is what happened with "Rhythm 0", one of her earliest works. She displayed 72 objects on a table giving the audience six hours and complete freedom in regards to using them on her body. Among these were scissors, a bullet and a gun, honey, a scalpel and a whip. The performance tested the vulnerability of human behaviour when hidden from social consequences. Markings of aggression were apparent on Marina's body once it was over, with cuts on her neck, clothes torn off, thorns in her stomach. The loaded gun had been pointed to her head.
