Cleaning the Mirror
At once radical, controversial and revered, Marina Abramović is one of the most discussed artists today. Famous for her groundbreaking performance works, she continues to expand the boundaries of art. This exhibition is produced in close collaboration with the artist and marks her first major retrospective in Europe.
In her work Marina Abramović explores the intersection between performing and visual art, with a focus in equal shares on body and time. Since the early 1970s she has continued to develop and expose a field of art other than the object based to a wider audience. Drawn from public and private collections, including that of the artist, the survey includes works from the earliest years, solo and with Ulay, until today: film, photography, paintings and objects, installations and select archival material.

The work poses questions of power and hierarchy yet is rarely overtly political. Her practice sometimes demands of us that we let go of a linear sense of time or an autonomous individuality. And yet personal experience and responsibility are central in her performances, seeking the core of notions like loss, memory, pain, endurance, trust. Marina Abramović addresses fundamental issues of our existence in ways that may both provoke and move us.

Marina Abramović was born 1946 in Belgrade, and is currently based in New York.

Reperformances will be performed daily in the exhibition, and 27 February–5 March a brand new performance by the artist will take place at the Eric Ericson Hall.

Blending references to history, legends and science fiction, for the last fifteen years, Jonathan Meese has been juxtaposing different personalities from various modes of expression such as film, opera, video or live performances. The expressionist forms and colours of his paintings are characterised by bold brush strokes and spontaneous scripts on a black background, completed with objects that are glued on. He creates his installations from various articles that he has collected. The exhibition refers to the mythical legends of Arthur, as well as to the works of Stanley Kubrik, John Boorman and the Marquis de Sade. It will consist of a series of paintings on canvas and ephemeral works applied directly on the mouldings of the former church. Installations made up of a variety of different articles will complete his work.(…) find out more
