Marina Abramovic

Tonight I'm going to the opening of the Marina-exhibition at Galleri Brandstrup in Oslo. Perhaps you remember a scene in Sex and the City where Carrie and the Russian enters a gallery late at night, watching a lady that just sits and sits? Well, that was a stand-in for Marina. I also saw her exhibition in Milan in may. So I'm quite excited to see more of her works. 

Serbian Marina is New York-based, and began her career in the early 1970s. She describes herself as the "grandmother of performance art." Abramović's work explores the relationship between performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind.

Her film, The Artist is Present, is also out now.
