In 1988 artists Marina Abramovic and Ulay ended their 12 years of relationship and collaboration. After which they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last time in the middle and never seeing each other again. They called this as “The Lovers: The Great Wall Walk”.
In 2010 Marina performed “The Artist is Present” where she shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and then this happened.
