 Press Release

NEON is proud to be partnering with the Marina Abramović Institute (MAI) for the first time to present the program AS ONE at the Benaki Museum (Pireos St. Annexe).  This major collaboration of Performance and Immaterial Art will take place over a period of seven weeks.

We live in a world of constant distraction where authentic connection with ourselves and other human beings often seems unattainable. The Abramović Method allows participants to unburden themselves of daily distractions in order to focus on and engage with a raw, timeless space where every connection is possible, and quiet, individual time is encouraged.

Developed over many years and in many iterations, The Abramović Method, is a public participatory experience for large groups. Participants engage with a series of exercises in a communal space to connect with themselves, each other and the present moment.

As part of AS ONE The Abramović Method will take place on the ground floor of the Benaki Museum, Pireos.  Visitors entering the Method are requested to deposit personal belongings – such as watches, phones and cameras – in a locker. They will then be led by trained facilitators through a series of warm up exercises, designed to wake up the senses, stretch the body and center the mind. This preparation will allow participants to focus on being present, still and connected. Throughout the experience, visitors will be able to choose how they engage with the work and will have ample space to explore and discover the possibilities of this unique environment.
