After the success of The Artist is present, her impressive retrospective held by the MoMA in 2010, Abramovic comes back this summer with a new durational performance called 512 hours. This time, she will invest the more intimate space of the Serpentine Gallery in London to create her new work: a silent piece where the public is widely encouraged to participate. Six days a week over a period of three months, Abramovic will stand and roam over the empty space waiting for the public to come and interact, just to “see what will happen”.
“I’m there for them. They are my living material, I am their living material. And from this nothing, something may or may not happen.” (artist’s statement)
