The Serpentine Gallery release vinyls by artists Marina Abramović and Ed Atkins
Two of the biggest art shows of London's 2014 summer are about to come to an end: that of Marina Abramović and Ed Atkins at The Serpentine Gallery. Together with The Vinyl Factory the iconic gallery in the UK capital has decided to launch some stylish souvenirs: limited edition vinyls featuring both artists.
There are only 100 copies of the vinyls available for purchase – all presented in a signed and numbered sleeve custom designed by each artist. The collector's items are £500 for Abramović's edition, which features a recording of the '512 Hours' artist performing 'An Artist's Life Manifesto' recorded at the Serpentine Gallery in the days leading up to the exhibition.
The Atkins edition is available for £200 and consists of three audio tracks from his multi-screen, digital avatar installation 'Ribbons' (2014), in addition to a specially created live reading by the artist of his text, 'Hammering the bars'.
