本紀錄片平實細膩的紀錄瑪莉娜在 MoMA 佈展的整個過程,整整三個月的展覽,瑪莉娜都坐在一張椅子上一動也不動,從早到晚、從開館到閉館,只要有觀眾坐在與她相對的那張椅子上,她都專心一致的凝望著對方。此展覽超過 85 萬的觀展人次,突破開館以來的最高紀錄,甚至引起眾人徹夜排隊,只為體驗與她相望的心靈激盪。當然,創作藝術的過程中,仍有千千萬萬的「非藝術」的考量:從整個展場進度的監工、保安人員的態度,一個龐大的展覽由許多耗費精神的細節架起,凝望的過程中也不乏對瑪莉娜挑釁質疑的觀眾,但這似乎都是一種「回應」的方式,瑪莉娜不論對面坐的是誰,都一律沉默、承擔。

This feature-length documentary film follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major retrospective of her work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. To be given a retrospective at one of the world's premiere museums is, for any living artist, the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more - it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: 'But why is this art?'
