Marina Abramovic: 512 Hours
12 June 2014The Serpentine premieres a new durational performance by Marina Abramović, who will spend 64 days in the galleries: 10am to 6pm, 6 days a week – for a total of 512 hours. Creating the simplest of environments in the Serpentine's spaces, Abramović’s only materials will be herself, the audience and a selection of common objects that she will use
in a constantly changing sequence of events. On arrival, visitors will leave their baggage behind in order to enter the exhibition: mobile phones, cameras and any other electronic equipment may not accompany them.
Marina Abramović will record an account of her day, every evening throughout the duration of her performance of 512 Hours. The Serpentine Diaries (published every night on www.thespace.org) will trace the fluctuations and developments of her performance piece, which begins with an empty space and unlimited possibilities.
