MARINA ABRAMOVIC

Born in 1946 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Marina Abramovic studied in Belgrade and Zagreb and is currently based in New York. Abramovic pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form in the early 1970s, exploring her physical and mental limits by withstanding pain, exhaustion, and danger in the quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. She collaborated with Ulay from 1976-89, created some of the most iconic early performance pieces, and is one of few artists of her generation who continues to make important durational works.

At Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, presented concurrently with PERFORMA05.
