Thank You for a love stories because of its Eppur si muove! saying by Galileo Galilie’s words “Yet It Moves!”
“Love Story”: in this two simple words the whole history of humanity is concluded. We all are a creations of love stories and we are creating our own lifelong love story.
Today I am lucky to touch a wonderful love story of Marina Abramović and Uwe Laysiepen. They are both a performance artists. Their love story began from their collaboration. “They decided to form a collective being called “the other”, and spoke of themselves as parts of a “two-headed body”. They dressed and behaved like twins, and created a relationship of complete trust,” which real Love is I think.
But sometimes life is more complicated than we would like to see. In 1988, after several years of tense relations, Abramović and Ulay decided to make a spiritual journey which would end their relationship. Each of them walked the Great Wall of China, starting from the two opposite ends and meeting in the middle. As Abramović described it: “That walk became a complete personal drama. Ulay started from the Gobi Desert and I from the Yellow Sea. After each of us walked 2500 km, we met in the middle for a big hug and said good-bye“.
At her 2010 MoMa retrospective, Marina performed “The Artist Is Present”.
In the great atrium of the Museum, throughout the public hours while her exhibit is open, Marina sits silently at a table, while museumgoers are invited to sit directly across from her.
Ulay arrived without her knowing…
Now you are going to witness Miracle of Love. You are going to observe Love in whole essence and beauty. You are going to experience full range of emotions Love brings. I am with you.
I understand why Eppur si muove! Our planet moves by energy of Love. We are the reason, we were and we will.
Life is nothing but a dream,
and if we are artists,
then we can create our life with Love,
and our dream becomes a masterpiece of art.
Thank you for this moment of sharing our own masterpiece of art, just Thank You.
