Marina Abramović, born in 1946 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, is one of the seminal artists of our time. Since the beginning of her career in Yugoslavia during the early 1970s where she attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Abramović has pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring the physical and mental limits of her being, she has withstood pain, exhaustion, and danger in the quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. Abramović’s concern is with creating works that ritualize the simple actions of everyday life like lying, sitting, dreaming, and thinking–in effect the manifestation of a unique mental state. As a vital member of the generation of pioneering performance artists that includes Bruce Nauman, Vito Acconci, and Chris Burden, Abramović created some of the most historic early performance pieces and is the only one still making important durational works.

She was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale for her extraordinary video installation/performance piece Balkan Baroque‚ and in 2003 received the Bessie for The House with the Ocean View‚ a 12-day performance at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York.

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her body as a vehicle, pushing beyond physical and mental limits, and at times risking her life, she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us.
