“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, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”
They looks more like a spacecraft than an ocean-going vessel, but new designs from renowned London-based architect Zaha Hadid for shipyard Blohm+Voss’s superyacht could soon be real.
“Until now, we’ve had to wait for a client to come to us with their idea and design, and there could still be a tendering process,” Dr. Herbert Aly, who runs Blohm+Voss, told Superyacht News. “When we decided to come to market with our own concept, it had to be something truly unexpected and exceptional. That was the basis of this collaboration with Zaha Hadid.”
The concept is called “Unique Circle Yachts” and was presented publicly in London on Tuesday night. The “circle” is made up of five smaller yachts and a central “mothership” superyacht. (Photo: Moka/Zaha Hadid/Blohm+Voss)
