1946, Belgrade, Serbia. Lives and works in New York, USA.

 

It has been over forty years since the first performance of Serbian Artist Marina Abramovic, in 1973. Known worldwide for an art that investigates the limits of the body and the relationship with the public, in Brazil the artist carried on the research on the potentials of mind, body and spirit, through the connection with nature and the sacredness. Since her first visit to the country in 1989, Abramovic went through many regions to investigate the power of crystals, healing places and rituals, in addition to religious syncretism. This interest in spirituality in Brazil culminated in the "Places of Power" (2012-2013) project, which brought together a series of works, such as photographs, videos and a documentary, released in several countries around the globe.
