The paper "Contemporary theory and art" analyzes the Contemporary theory and art. Performance can be applied in social concealment or entertainment. In this regard, Yves Klien in the artwork Anthropometries depicts the natural state of a woman’s body. In this regard, the human body can be regarded as a form of art dependent on several scenarios. Evidently, the artist seeks to justify the woman body as art without an attempt of objectifying women. The implication is that, such a performance private or public as well as either collective or personal. Another feature of binary performance is that it can be presented in a non-traditional manner to the audience. Its major form of characterization is grounded on space and time. In relation to space, the performance is guided by an individual’s perception of movement. In this regard, the movement undertaken is similar to a drawing depicted on space. Furthermore, the voice employed is a character depicting several polarities. This is evident in terms of the high or low pitch of the voice. In addition, voice has the capacity to perform independently or collectively. An important measure of depicting voice is by viewing it as an internal part of the performer. Another version of binary performance is participation against no participation, low art versus high art, performance versus gallery. In this regard, classical works and paintings are distinguished from performance art. Furthermore, both the performers and audience are in the equal space.
