The per­for­ma­tive rather than the con­cep­tual as­pect of art comes to the fore in the per­for­mance, usu­ally done in front of an au­di­ence. Four el­e­ments − time, place, the artist’s pres­ence and the re­la­tion­ship be­tween artist and au­di­ence − are usu­ally char­ac­ter­is­tics of per­for­mance art.

The Ser­bian artist Ma­rina Abramović is one of the fore­most in­ter­na­tional ex­po­nents of this form of art.
