Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, 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, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again.
At her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, where she shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.

Young video and performance artist Erica Schreiner contributes ‘Debris’, an autobiographical performance piece about loss, communication and the loss of communication. The work was shot, acted and edited by Schreiner herself and stands as a slight departure from the highly abstract narratives featured in much of her previous work.
The story telling and the drama enticed me. There is an infinite room for creativity and expression. Through fashion photography, you create, destroy and recreate worlds and meanings and universes.
For me, the story will always be king. It is important for me that even a single image could tell a story. It should open windows of interpretations, doors to a vast world of imagination and lead to infinite roads of meanings.
