Lisson Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition by Marina Abramovic, the first solo show of Abramovic?s work at Lisson Gallery. The exhibition will explore the enduring and cerebral output of her work as a performance artist.
Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic has led the way in creating performance as a visual art form. Described as 'one of the defining artists of radical performance', she has transcended the form's provocative origins and created some of the most important works in the genre.
Challenging, uncompromising and often shocking, Abramovic's durational practice continually experiments with, and explores the boundaries of both her mental and physical endurance and that of her audience. With her body as both subject and medium, she tests the relationship between performer and audience, withstanding pain, exhaustion and danger in her quest for emotional, liberating and conscious altering transformation.
