I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER ME
7 December ~ 28 January
WANT YOU TO REMEMBER ME / OBOETETE is a dramatic new installation of YOKO ONO dealing with shattered lives, loss and remembrance. Inspired by her own experiences of growing up in war-torn Japan, displacement and awareness of the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and now by the events of March 2011, ONO has created works that confront the emotions of the viewer and open up memories in each individual.
The installation I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER ME / OBOETETE serves as a window through which we can project our own thoughts, and find resonance in many areas of our own minds and experiences. This is one of the great abilities of ONO’s work, which time and again she has realized in many different ways with works such as FREIGHT TRAIN, ExIt, WISH TREES, IMAGINE PEACE, and so many others.
Gallery 360º Tokyo is once again honored to present the work of YOKO ONO. The exhibition, which opens on December 7 will be on display until January 28, 2012. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
