Marina Abramović, Tickets Released for Exhibition

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 21 settembre 2020

London – Christie’s will host an exhibition of Marina Abramović’s ground-breaking Mixed Reality performance piece The Life at King Street from 8 to 22 October 2020. It is the first work of its kind to be offered at auction, and is a highlight of the Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale on 22 October 2020 (estimate in the region of £600,000). The Life premiered at London’s Serpentine Gallery in February 2019, a revolutionary fusion of art and technology that allows viewers to have an intimate digital encounter with Marina Abramović herself via a wearable spatial computing device. A dimensional photographic capture of the artist – like a hologram – appears, performing a unique, meditative and altogether entrancing piece within a roped off five-metre circle, before evaporating into thin air. Unlike Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality allows the other visitors and gallery space to remain visible at the same time, creating a unique interactive experience. Abramović’s pioneering use of this evolving technology reflects her longstanding interest in the limitations of the human body and mind: an enquiry that, since the 1970s, has given rise to one of the world’s greatest artistic careers. To that end she will be the subject of a major solo exhibition at London’s Royal Academy of Arts in 2021, the first time that a woman has been selected for the main galleries in the institution’s 250+ year history.
