Yoko Ono: Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished


Yoko Ono: Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished

Embodying her visionary philosophy, Yoko Ono's latest artist's book is a companion for life

This new publication by avant-garde artist and cultural icon Yoko Ono (born 1933) combines never-before-published texts and invitation pieces written in 2016–18 with drawings from the Franklin Summer series Ono started in 1994.

For Ono, words, artworks and books still have the power to change the world we live in for the better. Thus she continuously shares with us her vision and philosophy toward life—one that is made of pivotal experiences, unstoppable optimism and a love for the other. Coming after several volumes that have proved to be life companions for many, Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished reflects on her most recent feelings through a delicate interweaving of poems, aphorisms, short stories and drawings.

Born in Tokyo in 1933, Yoko Ono moved to New York in the mid-1950s, where she quickly became a critical link between the American and Japanese avant-gardes, participating in Fluxus and pioneering new idioms in performance and art. Ono's groundbreaking work greatly influenced the international development of conceptual art, performance art and experimental film and music.

FROM THE BOOK
Unfinished Music …
(Still Searching For Life)

Gaiety
Which does not exist
In my life at this point
Would I like it? If it did?
If I met with it now?
What do I have to go through
To be angry and
Stay in the state of anger.
I'm getting too anemic for it
In fact, I'm getting more and more anemic.

Thousands of ants
Were having a good time
Or a bad time
Who knows
In the end does it matter?
Yes
I think it does matter

Could it be any simpler, more direct or true? Captioned, "Add color where the world needs peace," this image is reproduced from Yoko Ono's new clothbound Grapefruit-sized artist's book, Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished, just out from JRP|Ringier. Elsewhere she asks, "What can a pen do?" And states, "Believe in yourself and you will change the world." continue to blog
