Introducing a series of three hand-signed (COA) screen prints by the performance art pioneer Marina Abramović.
Over the past 50 years, Abramović has captivated audiences by pushing the limits of her body and mind. With this intimate triptych, the art world warrior applies body to paper, carefully outlining her hands and iconic silhouette to create a striking new portrait. Expelling red pastel swirls of energy, the three prints centre around handwritten words taken from her ‘Unconditional Love’ manifesto, written and performed in 2023.
‘Marina Abramović, Unconditional Love (2023)’ is only available for a limited time on the CIRCA website between 14 December 2023 and Valentine's Day, 14 February 2024. These hand-signed (COA), two-colour (black and red) screen-prints are offered affordably, with love from Abramović and CIRCA, to reach as many people as possible.
Collectors can choose between ordering an individual print (£120+VAT) or the complete set of three prints (£300+VAT) from the drop-down menu below.
FROM THE ARTIST
“These prints are made with love. My hope is to remind us all of the transformative power of art. I wanted to try something new and make this work as affordable as possible for everyone. Something for the kids to hang on their walls. A daily reminder to be bold and courageous. Our future needs unconditional generosity of spirit and of being. I hope the words in this manifesto inspire the transformation that our world so desperately needs. Urgently. My love letter to the planet at this turbulent time, from the bottom of my heart.

ABOUT MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ
Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramović has pioneered performance as a visual art form. She created some of the most important early works in this practice, including Rhythm 0 (1974), in which she offered herself as an object of experimentation for the audience, as well as Rhythm 5 (1974), where she lay in the centre of a burning five-point star to the point of losing consciousness. These performances married concept with physicality, endurance with empathy, complicity with loss of control, and passivity with danger. They pushed the boundaries of self-discovery, both of herself and her audience. They also marked her first engagements with time, stillness, energy, pain, and the resulting heightened consciousness generated by long durational performance.
In 2012, she founded the Marina Abramović Institute (MAI), a non-profit foundation for performance art, that focuses on performance, long durational works, and the use of the ‘Abramović Method’. MAI is a platform for immaterial and long durational work to create new possibilities for collaboration among thinkers of all fields.
Abramović was one of the first performance artists to become formally accepted by the institutional museum world with major solo shows taking place throughout Europe and the US over a period of more than 25 years. In 2023, Abramović became the first female artist to host a major solo exhibition in the Main Galleries of the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Her first European retrospective ‘The Cleaner’ was presented at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden in 2017, followed by presentations at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, Denmark, Henie Onstad, Sanvika, Norway (2017), Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, Germany (2018), Centre of Contemporary Art, Torun (2019), and concluding at the Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, Serbia (2019). In 2010, Abramovic had her first major U.S. retrospective and simultaneously performed for over 700 hours in “The Artist is Present” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
