Corian portraits

Marina Abramović, 2019

After the production of Marina Abramović's five alabaster portraits that formed Five Stages of Maya Dance (exhibited at Masterpiece Presents in 2018), the artist continues her exploration of the image-making possibilities of relief carving, that merges the ephemeral and the permanent, performance and light.

Marina's self-portraits are carved in negative and positive relief in Corian; when light passes through them they give the effect of a positive or negative photograph. They were first displayed at Wilde Gallery's booth during Art Basel in 2019.
