Marina Abramović has re-made her 1978 performance piece Work Relation (originally staged with her then-partner Ulay), only this time everyone’s wearing….Adidas trainers.  This new iteration of the work is a ‘collaborative project’ with Adidas to celebrate the 2014 FIFA World Cup.  With it’s ‘arty’ black and white footage and authoritative artist voice over, the two and a half minute short is meant to celebrate the power of teamwork, but let’s call a spade a spade; it’s basically a big shoe ad.  Gross.
