Publicité

Yoko Ono, née le 18 février 1933 à Tokyo au Japon, est une artiste expérimentale, plasticienne, poète, performeuse, musicienne, chanteuse, compositrice, écrivain, comédienne et cinéaste japonaise.

Membre cruciale de l'avant-garde new-yorkaise dans les années 1960, qui gravite autour de John Cage, Yoko Ono développe des formes artistiques entre poésie, performance, cinéma et musique expérimentale. Elle a surtout participé à l'un des courants artistiques les plus importants du XXe siècle, Fluxus.

Pour le grand public, Yoko est notamment connue pour le couple qu'elle forma à partir de mai 1968 avec John Lennon, jusqu'à son assassinat sous ses yeux à New York le 8 décembre 1980. Ce dernier avait coutume de la surnommer « the world's most famous unknown artist » .

„In a day, sometimes I feel so much love for the world, I think my heart is bursting. Sometimes, I feel so scared, I want to shrink myself even further.“

— Yoko Ono
Context: In a day, sometimes I feel so much love for the world, I think my heart is bursting. Sometimes, I feel so scared, I want to shrink myself even further. I think that’s what happened to us gods and goddesses. Like the dinosaurs, we realized that it’s too dangerous to be so large. So we kept shrinking ourselves to what we are now. We might get even smaller. I see the sign in the engineers making smaller gadgets, smaller and smaller. Pretty soon, our fingers will be too large to operate them. So what are we doing? I trust in the human wisdom. We are incredibly intelligent beings. So we might know something without thinking that we know…. Well, even my best friend didn’t know until now that I was thinking of crazy things like this. 25 Things Even My Best Friends Didn’t Know Until Now (1 October 2009).

„Walking on thin ice, I'm paying the price.
I'm throwing the dice in the air.“

— Yoko Ono
Context: Walking on thin ice, I'm paying the price. I'm throwing the dice in the air. Why must we learn it the hard way And play the game of life with your heart? "Walking On Thin Ice" on Season of Glass (1981) - YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1DHm7p1sm4

„I learnt to travel the world around
And run on the ground in the morning.
And that's the story of a wandering soul,
A story of a dreamer.“

— Yoko Ono
Context: I usually stay away from being carried away, But one day I saw a silver horse. I thought he might take me to that somewhere high, I thought he might take me to that deep blue sky. I came to realize that the horse had no wings. No wings, well, it wasn't so bad, you know. I learnt to travel the world around And run on the ground in the morning. And that's the story of a wandering soul, A story of a dreamer. "Silver Horse" on Season of Glass (1981).

„If Lennon were alive today, he probably would have reconciled with the man he accused of having "made a fool of everyone." John would have been the first one now, if he had been there, to recognise and acknowledge what Maharishi has done for the world and appreciate it“
