Marina Abramovic

Marina Abramovic (Serbia, 1946) is an artist who pioneered the use of performance as an art form. Her work explores the relationship between artist and audience as well as the physical and mental limits of her being. The body has been both her main subject of interest and medium.

Active for over four decades, Marina Abramovic is interested creating works that ritualize simple actions and has consistently avoided traditional, object-based materials such as paint and canvas. Abramovic is the founder of the Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI) and was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale.

Factum Arte and Marina Abramovic have had an ongoing collaboration since 2013. Our endeavour with Abramovic focuses on developing innovative materialisations of her ideas and practice. We explore several subjects and their materialisation, such as presence and absence, life and death, the ephemeral and the permanent. These and many other result from a number of visits to our workshop and the experimentation between our technologies and her ideas.

The work Marina Abramovic created at Factum Arte has been exhibited at:
