Graphic Project: Marina Abramovic "The Spirit in any condition does not burn"

An artist keeping his arms up in front of a waterfall and a vertical writing along the water stream, “The spirit in any condition does not burn”, is the leading image chosen by Abramovic for Furla Award 2009.

The writing on the waterfall's vertical stream highlights also another significant concept in the current crisis. It reminds that when a spirit exists and burns, it is hardly exhausted and destroyed by life's adversities.
