marina meets ulay : love beyond time

If you ever loved and lost, you should most definitely watch this {you'll understand why}.

This is one of the most emotionally powerful things I have seen in a while, I highly recommend it, though it comes with a warning - it will make you cry!

Performance artist Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 1970s, 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, meeting for one last time in the middle and never seeing each other again.

At her 2010 Museum of Modern Art retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay, her former lover, arrived without her knowing and this is what happened. Once again they meet.

Love is eternal, it goes beyong the barriers of time... and so much can be said without any words at all.

Really moving, don't you think?

Have a great weekend...and, please, love!
