45 years after her very first performance, Marina Abramović is known as the grandmother of performance art. We met her for the opening The Cleaner, her retrospective at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Oslo late last year. Abramović takes us back to the very beginning — to the moment she transformed from being a little, afraid Marina, into the fearless artist she is today.
“It’s was like wow — that was the Marina I want to be.”
The Cleaner is Marina Abramović's critically acclaimed retrospective museum exhibition at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Norway. Exhibition organised by Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in collaboration with the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, and Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn.
