poster for Yoko Ono "LIGHT"

This event has ended.

Since the early 1960s, Yoko Ono has been inspiring the world. The hope for peace and freedom has always been an essential element and driving power behind her creative philosophy. Her artistic messages have challenged the world's existing values and inspired people to exercise their own imagination for the future, especially in such times when the society is forced to change.

In the exhibition at Tomio Koyama Gallery, "LIGHT" (original title in Japanese 灯 あかり), Ono will present a variety of works to bring light to the Japanese people in the wake of the tragic earthquake. Among the works in the exhibitions are: "TO THE LIGHT", a large maze which people can walk through to find a light in the center; "INVISIBLE PEOPLE", transparent human-shaped figures standing in dim lights in the darkness; works from "REMNANTS", arranged and displayed broken furniture from a house that was destroyed in the Great East Japan Earthquake. Based on one of the works from "REMNANTS", Ono created an edition work titled "AIR CLOCK" and will release it to the public for the first time in this exhibition. Ono will also inscribe messages of her hopes and thoughts in the gallery space with Japanese calligraphy.
