Last week on Facebook, Yoko Ono invited women from around the world to participate in a project in Reykjavík, Iceland:
WOMEN OF ALL AGES, FROM ALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD: YOU ARE INVITED TO SEND A TESTAMENT OF HARM DONE TO YOU FOR BEING A WOMAN.
WRITE YOUR TESTAMENT IN YOUR OWN LANGUAGE,
IN YOUR OWN WORDS, AND WRITE HOWEVER OPENLY YOU WISH. YOU MAY SIGN YOUR FIRST NAME IF YOU WISH, BUT DO NOT GIVE YOUR FULL NAME.
SEND A PHOTOGRAPH OF YOUR EYES.
THE TESTAMENTS OF HARM AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF YOUR EYES WILL BE EXHIBITED IN MY INSTALLATION ARISING, OCTOBER 7, 2016 – FEBRUARY 5 2017, AT REYKJAVÍK ART MUSEUM.
I VERY MUCH HOPE FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION."
- Yoko Ono, September 6th, 2016
Arising is an ongoing project and continues to accept submissions. Testaments and photographs of your eyes can be delivered in person or by mail, to: Arising, Listasafn Reykjavíkur, Tryggvagata 17, 101 Reykjavík, or via email to: email@example.com
