512 hours with Marina

Every day for three months, this is 512 hours: Marina Abramović is at Serpentine Gallery in London, from  10am to 6pm, 6 days a week. On arrival, visitors will both literally and metaphorically leave their baggage behind in order to enter the exhibition: bags, jackets, electronic equipment, watches and cameras may not accompany them. 

Marina Abramović is a pioneer of performance as an art form, using her own body as subject and object, she has pushed the physical and mental limits of her being. This is the first major performance by Abramović 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.

At the end of the day, the performance will be on line: Marina at Midnight
