For six days a week, eight hours a day, the doyenne of performance art, Marina Abramovic will be at the Serpentine Gallery. Although there will be nothing in the gallery, the Belgrade-born artist will be interacting directly with gallery visitors for a total of 512 hours. As an expert of durational performance, she’s sat on a chair for 736 hours and 30 minutes staring at gallery visitors for her retrospective at New York’s MoMA, so expect the most extraoridnary encounter you’ll ever experience in a gallery.
Be warned there will no doubt be queues as there is a limited capacity of 160 visitors. You’ll have to leave mobile phones, bags and coats in the lockers provided, as Abramovic doesn’t want any distractions. And under 12s will not be permitted.
