The Ecstasies of Marina Abramović at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana
#Art

The artist from Belgrade, that revolutionised the world of performance art, pays homage to Saint Therese of Avila with three videos that document as many performances held in 2009 at the ex-covent of La Laboral in Gijón, Spain. Through the series of videos The Kitchen. Homage to Saint Therese, Marian Abramovic explores one of the Catholic world’s most important figures. The public is invited to make a “pilgrimage” by viewing three distinct works. Curated by Casa Testori in collaboration with the Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana, the exhibition is part of the itinerary that conducts visitors through the Crypt of San Sepulchre which was recently restored to its former splendour.
