Be Inspired: The Artist Is Present


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, where she shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.

This is her ex-husband and first love… she used to peform with him, soulmate..twin flame kind of bond. They hadn’t spoken for years before this and no one told her that he would be coming into the exhibit or sitting with her.Via zengarage.
