The retrospective exhibition Marina Abramović – The Cleaner has been produced in close collaboration with the artist herself and is the most comprehensive presentation of Marina Abramović´s work in Europe.

Date Place
Prisma Galleries and Studio

For more than 50 years, Marina Abramović has challenged the limits of art. The Cleaner presents her long career as an artist and how she has put her distinctive emphasis on performance art in particular. Using her own body as means, she has pushed herself to the outmost, and not rarely exposed herself to mortal danger in her shocking, challenging and moving performance works.

Abramović is one of contemporary art's most important figures. Since its inception in 1968, Høvikodden has been an important place not only for exhibitions, but also for experimental music, dance, theatre and performance art in Norway. This makes Henie Onstad a natural arena for presenting this particular oeuvre.

Today her art is closely connected to being present, something the audience will get a unique opportunity to experience in the new Community Work .

During the weekends, re-enactments of Abramović's iconic performances will be presented. The new Community Work, The Abramović Method will be open for the audience from February 27 to March 4.
