Marina Abramovic describes herself as the “grandmother of performance art”. In 2010, she launched her show “The Artist is Present”, a 736-hour and 30-minute static, silent piece in which she sat immobile and invited people to take turns sitting opposite her.

For many years, she was in a relationship with fellow performance artist, Ulay Laysiepen. In 1988, they decided to end their relationship by each of them walking from one end of the Great Wall of China, a total of 2,500km, and meeting in the middle, wherein they embraced each other and said goodbye.

22 years later, Ulay made a surprise appearance during the opening night and this is what happened.
