Marina Abramovic meets Ulay
“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”
Old lovers never leave you. You can say that they no longer mean anything to you, that you have since forgotten them, but the truth is that the moment you see their face a landslide of emotion rushes at you and you will feel, even if it’s for a short fleeting moment, the love you once had for them all over again.
Oddly relevant to my night last night.
