About Marina Abramović
Marina Abramović is a New York based performance artist.
Marina Abramović started to do her artistic works in the early 1970s in her native land, Belgrade. In 1976, she moved to Amsterdam, and she met West German performance artist Uwe Laysiepen (also known as Ulay). When Abramović and Laysiepen began their collaboration, the main concepts they explored were the ego and artistic identity.
Abramović presented Seven Easy Pieces at Guggenheim Museum, New York City in 2005, in which performed on seven consecutive nights for seven hours she recreated the works of five artists showcased in the 60s and 70s.
The Museum of Modern Art held a major retrospective and performance recreation of Abramović’s work, the biggest exhibition of performance art in MoMA’s history in March 14 to May 31, 2010. During the entire run of the exhibit, she performed The Artist is Present, a 736-hour and 30-minute static, silent piece, in which she sat immobile in the museum’s atrium while spectators were invited to take turns sitting opposite her.
In 2013, Abramović is working with pop singer Lady Gaga on the singer’s third album, Artpop. Gaga’s work with Abramović will be displayed at an event titled “artRave” on November 10.
