Christie's will host an exhibition of Marina Abramovic's ground-breaking Mixed Reality performance piece The Life at King Street from 8 to 22 October 2020. It is the first work of its kind to be offered at auction, and is a highlight of the Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale on 22 October 2020 (estimate in the region of u00a3400,000-800,000). The Life premiered at London's Serpentine Gallery in February 2019, a revolutionary fusion of art and technology that allows viewers to have an intimate digital encounter with Marina Abramovic herself via a wearable spatial computing device. A dimensional photographic capture of the artist - like a hologram - appears, performing a unique, meditative and altogether entrancing piece within a roped off five-metre circle, before evaporating into thin air. Timed tickets can be pre-booked using the following link: https://tickets.christies.com/#/event-details/marina-abramovic-the-life The performance is free to attend, and tickets are offered on a first come, first serve basis so please book early to avoid disappointment. Due to social distancing, visitors must pre-book tickets to gain entry to The Life. The opening hours for the performance are as follows: 10am-6pm Monday to Friday, 12noon-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
