The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen & Marina Abramovic

Edited by Lærke Rydal Jørgensen.

“I had a strong personal desire to illustrate Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Ugly Duckling,’” reflects pioneering performance artist Marina Abramovic (born 1946). “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.

Celebrate Women's History Month with Marina Abramovic's rendition of 'The Ugly Duckling'

As a child, Marina Abramovic identified with the story of the Ugly Duckling. "Since I was very young I always felt like a misfit," she writes in her new illustrated version of the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale. "At one point in my diary I wrote that I felt ugly, fat and unwanted. Therefore my teenage years were desperately awkward and unhappy. I had skinny legs, orthopedic shoes, and ugly glasses. My mother cut my hair way above the ear and fixed it with a pin, and put me in heavy wool dresses. And I had a baby face with an impossibly big nose. In my mind I was the ugliest kid in my school." Then she found the medium of performance. "The moment I stepped in front of the public in my first performance, I experienced my transformation immediately, like I was hatching out of an egg. I left behind my doubts and low self-esteem and discovered my higher self. When I perform, I feel beautiful, radiant and powerful. Everything is possible, and the world around me becomes luminous." continue to blog
