Relation In Time

Marina Abramovic and Ulay

This performance represents a "relationship in time." Both Abramovic and Ulay sat tied by their hair for a total of 17 hours. For the first 16 hours, they spent their time alone, but visitors were welcomed to witness the two at the start of the last hour. In addition, a photo was taken each hour. At the start, viewers can see the relationship was pure perfection but as the hours pass, the perfection fades. Although they are "linked" together, at times they appear to be doing different things.

I get the message they are trying to convey, such as unity or isolation, but in all honesty, I'm not a fan of this type of art.
