  • Marina Abramović at The Serpentine Gallery

Everyday from the 11th of June until the 25th of August, Marina Abramović will perform at The Serpentine Gallery in London from 10am until 6pm. Creating the simplest of environments in the Gallery spaces, her only materials will be herself, the audience and a selection of common objects that she will use in a constantly changing sequence of events. The public become the performing body, participating in the delivery of an unprecedented moment in the history of performance art. As pioneer of performance as an art form, using her own body as subject and object, she pushes the physical and mental limits of her being. This is her first major performance since her monumental piece 'The Artist is Present', at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 2010, in which visitors were invited to sit in silence opposite the artist and gaze into her eyes for an unspecified amount of time. The exhibition by Ed Atkins takes place concurrently at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, bringing together two extraordinary artists from different generations who focus on performance, the body and language.
