What do you do when you suddenly see your ex-flame?
I once bumped into an old flame and couldn’t forget the tension I felt when I saw that he also saw me. I saw how shocked & scared he was; he had to avoid the path leading to my direction. I couldn’t understand why.
It made me think. Situations like that only prove that closures never really come at the time we think we, or decided to, end a relationship. Nor is it an indication that the closure has finally arrived when it happens. It is a mere indicator that we still acknowledge the effect this person still has on us or how that certain person made an impact in our lives.
Watching this video moved me to tears. I had hoped to meet him again like this, like we have acknowledged the fact everything’s ok & will be ok. Maybe someday.
From Yahoo! News Canada:
In 2010, performance artist Marina Abramovic’s retrospective exhibit “The Artist is Present” at New York’s MoMa spanned over four decades of her prolific career.
She also staged an original work, a solo piece during which she sat in a chair at a table, facing museum visitors in silence.
As visitors sat in complete silence in the chair opposite her, Abramovic would raise her head and look them in the eye for one minute, bringing some museum-goers to tears.
What Abramovic couldn’t not have anticipated was that one of those visitors would be the man she once performed with.
“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. In 2010, Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present,’ a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened,” commenter HGiskardReventlov wrote on YouTube.
