行为艺术家乌雷逝世,一段旷世之恋迎来终曲

Ulay, Boundary-Pushing Performance Artist, Dies at 76

他曾不断突破极限:行为艺术家乌雷去世,享年76岁

Ulay, the performance artist whose provocative collaborations with Marina Abramovic often led them to push each other to extremes, died on Monday at his home in Slovenia. He was 76.

行为艺术家乌雷周一在斯洛文尼亚的家中去世,享年76岁。乌雷与行为艺术家玛丽娜•阿布拉莫维奇合作的一系列激进的作品,时常将双方互相推至极限。

The pair’s work, while often dangerous, was designed at times to show audiences the intensity of their bond. In “Rest Energy,” from 1980, they faced each other, a bow and arrow between them. Ms. Abramovic held the bow while Ulay leaned back, pulling the arrow taut and aiming it at her chest. One slip could have caused Ulay to fire the arrow straight into her.

这对搭档的作品虽然常常颇为危险,却旨在不时地向观众展示两人之间的紧密联结。在1980年的作品《潜能》中,两人面对面站着,中间是一张弓和一支箭。阿布拉莫维奇握着弓,乌雷则抓着箭对准她的胸部,向后倾拉紧。一旦乌雷手滑,这把箭就会直接射向她。

In Ulay’s final work with Ms. Abramovic, “The Lovers,” each of them walked more than 1,000 miles from different ends of the Great Wall of China until they met. The work had been conceived to culminate in the couple’s marriage, but by then they were estranged, and it was used to mark their separation instead.

在他们最后一次合作的作品《情人》中,两人各自从中国万里长城的两端出发,步行1000多英里后最终会合。他们原本计划以结婚为这次作品收尾,但当时两人的关系已经疏远,那次行为艺术反而标志着二人关系的终结。

They did not speak to each other again for some 20 years.

此后大约20年里,他们没有再说过话。

In 2010, he had a public reunion with Ms. Abramovic when he sat down opposite her and took her outstretched hands during “The Artist Is Present”. A video clip of their meeting, set to sentimental music, has been viewed more than 17 million times on YouTube. “It was a very touching moment,” Ulay told The Guardian in 2016.

2010年,乌雷和阿布拉莫维奇有了一次公开重聚。在名为《艺术家此在》的行为艺术表演现场,乌雷在阿布拉莫维奇对面坐下,拉着她伸出的双手。两人会面的这段视频配上伤感的音乐,在YouTube被观看了1700多万次。乌雷在2016年接受《卫报》的一次采访时表示:“这是一个非常令人动容的时刻。”
