GUANGZHOU.-Guangdong Museum of Art in Guangzhou Friday 7th of March. The exhibition is curated by the artist herself and organized by Gunnar B. Kvaran and Biljana Ciric. ’Yoko Ono – FLY’ includes seven of Yoko Ono’s most significant art works.

Yoko Ono is a cultural symbol under a big name of an epoch. However, as an independent individual, a contemporary artist, her work contains the succinctness and common sensibilities which affect the audience deeply.

During the days without Lennon, she persists on her creation, till now, and even longer. Female artists often focus on searching and exposing the special character, but for Yoko Ono, it seems not a dilemma any more, because she is no longer lacking of praise or criticisms, her character and personality has already been unfolded in her life experience. To Lennon, she may be soft and animated; as an artist, she is sensitive and penetrated; and as a woman, her thoughts on love, mother, family even death are warm. Maybe, a soft and humble heart is hiding behind her pride.

Those themes which are heavy but seems light, love, family, wishes and death, presented in a undefiled way, it's a strength that soft, at least wants to make you feel the soft strength and touched. In her totem, the various sentiments, are the necessity of life, life is not all roses if lost, yet more luxuriant if more.

In Yoko’s most famous work Wish Tree, she collects lots of wishes from all over the world, and sends them to the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, which was built for her beloved John, to pray that all the lovely wishes would come true, the same as they pray for peace. The audiences will receive Yoko’s call during the exhibition, which is her other work, Telephone Piece, a talking sculpture. Most of Yoko’s video works are searching the freedom of spirit is the theme, which can be seen from her Instruction Works. This personal-ceremony like work will also flourish in Guangzhou, and the audiences will take the invitation with one of her Instruction Pieces to participate her art.
