Through her work she has created a different kind of relationship with the spectators, inviting them to play an active part in the making and creative process of the art work. In Yoko Ono's art, two cultural worlds meet - the oriental and the western - which extend, strengthen and exalt each other in continuous innovation.
"The exhibition is an intellectual, artistic and poetic treatment of art itself, not to mention the strong social and political references.' - Bunnar B. Kvaran.
