Viewing Humble Works, Colnaghi London

Marina mania has struck. Although the long-anticipated Marina Abramović retrospective at the Royal Academy has been postponed (again), September sees the opening of two exciting Marina shows.

The first can be found at London’s Lisson Gallery. Seven Deaths, which takes over Lisson’s Cork Street and Lisson Street spaces, features a new, immersive cinematic experience centred on the talented and tragic figure of singer Maria Callas. Colnaghi, meanwhile, stages Humble Works, a group exhibition of new pieces by Abramović, Nico Vascellari and Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich that respond to a series of masterworks spanning from Antiquity to the Modern Era.

New installation, photography and video works will be displayed alongside historic paintings or objects of the artists’ choosing, highlighting the creative synergies among artists across different ages. Among the standout exhibits is Diego Velázquez’s full-length portrait of Mother Jerónima de la Fuente from 1620, rarely seen on public view in the UK.

‘It is our privilege to present these artist’s deeply personal artistic responses to their selected masterpieces in this unique site-specific exhibition,’ says Colnaghi senior global director Chloe Stead. ‘I hope that visitors will find the juxtapositions and dialogues between the works thought-provoking, perhaps provocative, but certainly rewarding.’
