Did anybody make it down to Marina Abramovic's 512 Hours at the Serpentine? My tolerance for queuing only extends to rollercoasters, waterslides and alcohol, never performance art, so I didn't bother. But after learning about Marina AbramoPUG, I really wish I had.
Marina Abramopug took up residence right outside the Hyde Park gallery, mimicking Abramovic's 2010 MOMA piece, The Artist Is Present. Her assistant (artist/comedian) Hannah Ballou set the thing in motion, but Marina was naturally the star of the show. Like her human counterpart, she maintained a poised stillness, provoking questions about liminality, form as representation and how she goes for a piss.
You can keep up with Marina Abramopug's projects on her tumblr. You can find her in Hyde Park.
