Tribute to the Queen of Performance Art

Tribute to the Queen of Performance Art
#Exhibitions

The multi-disciplinary space of the Light Society, which dedicates huge resources to the study, divulgation and the collecting of modern photography throughout the world, has created the ideal habitat for hosting an exhibition paying tribute to the one of the planet’s foremost performance artists. The works on display, a selection of works from the past, along with more recent works, many of which are on display in China for the first time ever, explore the decades of activity by Marina Abramović, from her start in the early ‘70s in Belgrade, to the monographic shows at the world’s most important museums and the Lisson Gallery which were put on in affirming performance art as a visual art form, making the human body an absolute subject and medium in itself. Through video, photos and sculpture, the creations of Abramović always push us beyond the physical and mental limits of the artist, ritualising simple acts of quotidian life and resisting pain, fear and various perils, in a constant exploration through the emotional and spiritual dimensions of human beings.
