About this Event

** Event is now sold out, and there's no waiting list. Cancellations will be returned as available tickets, so keep an eye on this page or our Instagram account @acuteart_. Please note we reserved a couple of slots for walk ins.**

Marina Abramović’s first virtual reality piece, Rising (2018), produced by Acute Art, addresses climate change by transporting viewers to witness the effects of rising sea levels. Wearing an immersive headset, viewers enter an intimate virtual space, coming face-to-face with the artist who beckons from within a glass tank slowly filling with water. Visitors are invited to make contact with the virtual Abramović, finding themselves surrounded by a dramatic scene of melting polar ice caps. Abramović urges viewers to reconsider their impact on the world around them, asking them to choose whether or not to save her from drowning by pledging to support the environment.

This event is part of Art Night Open programme
