Yoko Ono. Das Gift

11.09.2010 - 13.11.2010

Haunch of Venison Berlin, Berlin / Deutschland

Yoko Ono's installation 'Das Gift' consists of sculptural, sound, film, and instruction-based participatory elements, which have been conceived specifically for this exhibition.

Ono's pioneering work with conceptual art and instruction-based work began in the 1950s. In 1964, she published the groundbreaking collection of these works, titled Grapefruit. This conceptualism is an underlying force of this exhibition. Through characteristically varied means, Ono addresses violence, healing, transformation, love, and questions the dichotomy of the personal and the global....

A HOLE, a fragile yet brutally forceful sculpture, is a focal point of the exhibition. It presents viewers with a pane of glass pierced by a bullet, with an instruction engraved on the glass, which reads: "GO TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GLASS AND SEE THROUGH THE HOLE". Ono's instruction encourages viewers to see from the perspective of both aggressor and victim, simultaneously engaging two opposing viewpoints.
