Marina Abramovic | the artist




The artist Marina Abramovic
Born 1946, Belgrad, Jugoslavia.
Lives and works in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Style and technique of the artist: Performance Art, Video, Sao Paulo Biennale, Documenta Kassel,

Throughout her 30-year career, Abramovic has used her body as her primary material, pushing it to extremes of altered consciousness, often putting herself in great physical peril. Her concern with creating works that ritualize the simple actions of everyday life like lying, sitting, dreaming and thinking focuses, in effect, on the manifestation of a unique mental state.
