Born in Belgrade, Serbia, in 1946, Marina Abramovic now lives and works in New York. A major figure in performance art, she uses her own body as the subject, object and medium for her work, exploring the notions of physical and mental limits and the relationship between performing artists and their audience.

Since the early 1970s her work has been displayed in leading institutions in Europe and the USA. She has also taken part in various international exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale in 1976 and 1997 (Golden Lion for the best artist) and Documenta in Kassel in 1977, 1982 and 1992.
