Marina Abramovic and 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, 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.


“By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top. I climbed the tree to see the world. When the gusts came around to blow me down, I held on as tightly as you held onto me.” -The Cinematic Orchestra, To Build A Home

We had so little, but had so much. "Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you." -Lao Tzu
