In connection with the exhibition Marina Abramovic - The Cleaner, a new edition of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Ugly Duckling, featuring illustrations by Marina Abramovic.

I had a strong personal desire to illustrate Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling, reflects pioneering performance artist Marina Abramovic. 'As a young child and growing adolescent, I felt a complete identification with the story. I, too, was the ugly duckling.' Andersen's story of the ugly duckling that endures torment and loneliness before becoming a beautiful swan has resonated with readers since it was first published in 1843. Now, in this beautiful new edition of the classic fairy tale, Abramovic reimagines the story by adding new pen and crayon illustrations to the original text.

This volume is the second publication in a series of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales illustrated by contemporary artists, following the huge success of 2016's The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen & Yayoi Kusama.

Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, Denmark, in 1805. His Fairy Tales, the first children's stories of their kind, which were published in instalments from 1835 until his death in 1875, have been translated into more than a hundred languages and adapted for every kind of media.

Marina Abramovic

Born in Belgrade just after the end of the Second World War, Marina Abramovic (born 1946) was raised in the Serbian Orthodox Church (her great uncle was a Patriarch and a canonized saint in the Church) and left Yugoslavia in 1976, having already established herself as a performance artist, living in Amsterdam and eventually New York, where she presently lives.

In 2010 she was the subject of an enormously popular retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
