Abra sculpture
The 2018 edition of the city-wide celebration of sculpture will feature a sound installation of recorded birdsong, installed in an actual tree, by Marina Abramović.

The artwork, titled Tree, will be located at 99 Bishopsgate in London. The work was first presented outside the SKC Cultural Centre in Belgrade, previously a social club for the secret police, which Abramović and her fellow students repurposed after calling for official acknowledgment of their artistic activities.

This new configuration of the work, its first since 1971, utilises hidden speakers in the vicinity of a tree, rather than the more literal first iteration of a tape recorder balanced in the branches.
