Marina Abramović reflects on 64 days in the Serpentine Galleries.
In 512 Hours, artist Marina Abramović performed in the Serpentine Galleries from 10am to 6pm, six days a week, for 64 days from 11 June to 25 August 2014.
As part of the project, the The Space and The Serpentine commissioned her to create Marina at Midnight, a series of video diaries that shared her experiences from each day in the gallery. The videos were released nightly throughout the exhibition.
To mark the 256-hour halfway point of the exhibition, Marina also decided to share short diary pieces from visitors to exhibition.
