The two works by Yoko Ono presented here are based on a form of ritualised interaction with the public. What interests the artist is not so much the result as the means by which it is attained, in other words the process – what leads us all in the same direction, if only for a short moment. Cut Piece is a piece that Yoko Ono first performed in 1964 in NewYork. In it the artist sits on stage, in the traditional postureof a Japanese woman, and invites members ofthe audience to cut pieces out of her clothes with apair of scissors. The strange intimacy between skin,clothes and the body make Cut Piece an emblematicperformance. The story in it is the interaction ofthe artist and a stranger. My Mummy Was Beautifulinvites Biennale visitors to take part in the erectionof a volatile monument: everyone has to inscribe anexpression, a memory or a homage to all the mothersin the world, in other words to their own mother.Yoko Ono is also showing Summer Dream at the FondationBullukian (see p.67), and she is inviting us totake part: recount your summer dreams, and you willsee them on a wall, just for a moment, until they areshowing as part of a loop.

Summer Dream
Summer Dream 2012

A dream has to be put into words if you want other people to share it. Summer Dream is subversive and interactive, a work which is intimately connected with everyday life. Yoko Ono urges us to describe our summer dreams and asks us to share them as short texts which will be posted for the duration of the Biennale at the Bullukian Foundation. Summer Dream connects our dreams and our hopes, the social networks and the urban environment, and is an instance of Yoko Ono’s constantly renewed ability to unlock the imagination, with flawless commitment and an almost ethereal poetic quality, making her one of the foremost of today’s artists. Yoko Ono is also displaying two works at La Sucrière. Send your dreams by connecting on www.biennaledelyon.com They will be posted throughout the duration of the Biennale on a screen at the Bullukian Foundation, and on your own screens.
