Marina Abramović

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

Factum Arte and Marina Abramović have had an ongoing collaboration since 2013. Our endeavour with Abramović 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 others result from a number of visits to our workshop and the experimentation between our technologies and her ideas.
