At Art Basel, world renowned performance artist Marina Abramović announced in a panel discussion that she will launch her first ever NFTs titled The Hero 25FPS on the energy-efficient Tezos blockchain July 25th, 2022. This one-of-a-kind performance on the blockchain, presented in collaboration with the Cultural Institute of Radical Contemporary Art (CIRCA), depicts the figure of a steadfast woman astride a white horse holding a white flag that is waving gracefully in the wind, over the expansive landscape of trees and sky in Spain. The Hero 25FPS (frames per second) offers an opportunity to collect time and holds a symbolic charge as it is set against today’s backdrop of global instability, escalating conflict and climate breakdown.

For this performance on the blockchain, Abramović is revisiting one of her most personal and autobiographical works titledFundación NMAC showing the artist holding a white flag astride a white horse has been separated into thousands of unique single frames to create The Hero 25FPS NFTs, with each frame dramatically influenced by the changing wind.

This July, Abramović will invite the public to experience time through collecting either single unique frame NFTs (.JPG) or multiple unique frame NFTs (.GIF) on the Tezos blockchain. Expanding the concept of time-based media for a Web3 audience, this collaborative performance will engage thousands of NFT collectors with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of owning an affordable NFT by one of the world’s most famous performance artists, whilst also supporting the wider Web3 community.

The work will be part of an unprecedented three-month here” href=”https://nft.circa.art/” rel=”nofollow noopener”>here to apply.

“I want to just talk about something that is so interesting about the Web3 space, and this young generation of  people who work with NFTs. In the beginning, the older generation of artists likes to ridicule them and likes to think that this is nonsense, this is just bullshit. Same would happen to me in the 70s” said Marina Abramović. “Say to the young kids in Web3, just don’t give up, because you’re the future, you have the vision.”

Expanding on the HERO Grant dedicated to heroes in the Web3 space at Art Basel, Marina Abramović said: “We need people with a vision that can bring new light, that we can really look up to and look at their morality and be inspired. We need real heroes right now”.
