Yoko Ono | War Is Over

17:52

“The world’s most famous unknown artist: everybody knows her name, but nobody knows what she does.”

- John Lennon


Yoko Ono. 
The woman who broke up The Beatles or someone more?



On Saturday, 22 Feb, I visited the Yoko Ono Exhibition.
It was so worth it. 
Each and every piece of work hold such a significant amount of meaning.

Enter




War is Over
If you want it




Water Talk






Calligraphy Piece
This beautiful piece blew me away. A wall length of calligraphy, done right there, on the spot. 
Watch this video which explains the meaning behind the piece and shows the process of creating this artwork. 



 

Participation
"Participation is a central aspect of Ono's art and various works in this exhibition invite gallery visitors to become actively involved in creating meaning." 

We were invited to choose a stamp which said 'Imagine Peace' in several languages. 
We were to stamp it anywhere where we wanted peace in the world. 





My Mommy is Beautiful
"...which takes the form f a wall upon which audience members are invited to pin or tape private messages of love, hope, forgiveness and reconciliation to their mothers...elicits a spectrum of responses from love and thanks, to anger and sadness." 

"...I don't think I gave enough credit to my mother." -Yoko Ono




Sky TV and Helmets- Pieces of Sky
"Yoko Ono witnessed the physical and economic devastation of Japan as a young girl living through World War II... Ono has written about her wartime experiences, describing the hours that she and her brother spent watching the sky and clouds drift past..."

Angel
Following the theme of sky, here, my friend Sera and I finally found this beautiful place. 
We have seen numerous photos of this place, and we coincidentally bumped into it walking towards Pitt Street and the Queen Victoria Building.
