Marina Abramović is one of the most prolific performance and conceptual artists. Her work is legendary, mythic, operatic, and extraordinary in its clarity.
Employing duration, pain, danger, exhaustion, and viewer participation, the performance art of Marina Abramović complicates the relationship between art and audience. In many partner collaborative pieces, Marina Abramović and Ulay use their bodies as the medium and the message.
Marina Abramović explores physical limitations and the possibilities of the mind. She enacts performances that test her physical, mental, and emotional limits - often risking her life in such pieces as Rhythm 0. By working at these extremes, Marina Abramović passes through different mental states during her acts of performance in the quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. For Marina, the performative space is a reflection of our world - energy is given and taken; what happens must be accepted.
Now, at Moco Museum Amsterdam, you can experience one of the artist's most profound and personal pieces to date - The Hero by Marina Abramović.
