Marina Abramović. The Cleaner
25.11.2017 - 11.03.2018

On November 24, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter opens its doors to Marina Abramović's critically acclaimed retrospective museum exhibition The Cleaner. This exhibition first opened at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm in spring 2017 and will travel to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk this summer.

This will be the most extensive presentation of Abramović's works in Norway to date. We are very proud to be able to host this exhibition.

In line with Henie Onstad Kunstsenter's history, the exhibition at Høvikodden will present several of Abramović's performances. The exhibition will consist of more than 120 works produced over five decades and will be a unique opportunity to connect with Abramović's full-length artwork.

Exhibition organised by Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in collaboration with the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, and Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn


Welcome to live reperformances of Abramović's most iconic work

As part of the exhibition Henie Onstad Kunstsenter will present all three versions in the Freeing-series (Voice, Memory and Body) as well as a reperformance of Cleaning the Mirror.

The performances are performed by skilled Nordic performance artists who have undergone thorough preparation and training in Norway in collaboration with Lynsey Peisinger from the Marina Abramović Institute.

The performances are included in the regular museum ticket and take place inside the exhibition.
