The Great Wall

Marina Abramovic is an artist of action.  I took great interest in her journey from performing with her husband Ulay and having him be one of her components of her performance art.  The performance that I favored was her journey on the The Great Wall of China where her and Ulay started at opposite ends of the wall and met in the middle after 90 hours.  It was interesting how once they met in the middle they ended their relationship and went in opposite directions again, it was their last performance together.  I commend Marina because after her relationship with Ulay ended, she felt unwanted and since he was a crucial portion of her art she had to start from scratch and reinvent her art again and was successful.
