■ 'ABRAMOVIĆ METHOD FOR TREASURES' ■
Det Kgl. Bibliotek viser et helt nyt værk af den verdenskendte, serbiske performance-kunstner Marina Abramović. 'Abramović Method for Treasure' er skabt specielt til bibliotekets skatteudstilling i Den Sorte Diamant.

Marina Abramović er kendt som en af tidens største og mest grænseoverskridende performancekunstnere, der i sine værker både inddrager sig selv og publikum i alt fra intense performances til aktioner med fokus på dyb tilstedeværelse.

Omdrejningspunktet for værket på Det Kgl. Bibliotek er mødet mellem publikum og bibliotekets skatte. Igennem mere end 50 år har Abramović arbejdet med sin såkaldte Abramović Method, der via performative greb og ritualer søger at højne deltagernes oplevelse af mentalt og fysisk nærvær og dermed befordre en sanselig, personlig og næsten meditativ delagtighed i kunsten og livet.

Marina Abramović har udviklet en helt ny udgave af Abramović Method. Med afsæt i bl.a. Kierkegaards breve, Saxos Danmarkshistorie og Tycho Brahes observationer har Abramović skabt en totalinstallation, der bl.a. involverer en række ritualer, et audiosystem og specialdesignede menneskehylder.

Ved at invitere udstillingens gæster til at indgå som aktører i den performative totalinstallation skriver 'Abramović Method for Treasure' sig ind Abramovićs række af værker i de seneste år.
Publikum er i stigende grad gjort til performerne, og fokus ligger på oplevelsen og tilstedeværelsen hos den enkelte udstillingsgæst. Abramović sætter med andre ord scenen, men andre selv skal udfylde den ved at indgå i de forskellige ritualer. Med 'Abramović Method for Treasures' i Den Sorte Diamant orkestrerer Abramović et nyt og sanseligt møde med Det Kgl. Biblioteks skatte og den danske kulturarv.

■ OM KUNSTNEREN ■
Abramović er uddannet fra kunstakademiet i Beograd og har siden 1970’erne arbejdet med performance som sin kunstneriske praksis. Abramović kendt for sine risikable og ekstreme værker, der fokuserer på mødet mellem publikum og kunst. På ofte grænseoverskridende vis inddrager hun f.eks. både sin egen krop og sit publikum, som det ses i værkerne Rhythm 10, The Lovers, Balkan Baroque og The Artist Is Present – hvoraf sidstnævnte i 2010 blev set af over 850.000 besøgende på MoMA i New York.

■ 'ABRAMOVIĆ METHOD FOR TREASURES' ■
This summer, the Royal Library will present an all-new work by the world-famous Serbian-born performance artist Marina Abramović. Her new work, Abramović Method for Treasure, was created especially for the exhibition of selected treasures from the library in The Black Diamond.

Marina Abramović is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest and most barrier-breaking performance artists of our age. In her works she directly involves herself and the audience in everything from intense performances to actions that emphasise a deep, profound sense of presence in the here and now.

The pivotal point of the work shown at The Royal Library is the encounter between audiences and the library’s treasures. For more than fifty years now Abramović has worked with her so-called Abramović Method, which uses performative approaches and rituals to heighten the participants’ sense of mental and physical presence in the here and now, thereby supporting a sensuous, personal and almost meditative participation in art and life.

For this event Marina Abramovic has developed an entirely new version of her Abramović Method. Taking her starting point in sources such as the letters of Kierkegaard, Saxo’s chronicles of Danish history, and the observations of Tycho Brahe, Abramović has created an immersive total installation that includes a range of rituals, an audio system and specially designed shelves for people.

By inviting visitors to become actors and participants in the performative installation, Abramović Method for Treasure inscribes itself seamlessly in Abramović’s recent works. The audience increasingly become the performers, and the main emphasis is placed on each visitor’s experience and sense of presence. In other words, Abramović sets the scene, but others must bring it to life by taking part in the various rituals. With Abramović Method for Treasure at The Black Diamond, Abramovic orchestrates a new, sensuous way of engaging with the treasures of the Royal Library and Denmark’s cultural heritage.

■ ABOUT THE ARTIST ■
Abramović studied fine art at the art academy in Beograd and has worked with performance as her artistic practice since the 1970s. Abramović is known for extreme, boundary-breaking works that focus on the encounter between audience and art. Often pushing back personal and public limits, she incorporates her own body and her audience in her art, for example in the works Rhythm 10, The Lovers, Balkan Baroque and The Artist Is Present – in 2010 the latter attracted more than 850,000 visitors to MoMA in New York.
