Yoko Ono—a woman who saw her husband murdered in front of her and yet is still hated for the false idea that she broke up The Beatles—is still a working artist and musician at the age of 83. She's currently working on a mysterious project for Iceland's Reykjavík Art Museum that, if you are a woman, you can contribute to.
Says the English language version of the call for submissions, posted on Facebook:
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.
SEPTEMBER 6, 2016
Arising is an ongoing project and it will always be possible to add testaments. Bring your testaments and photographs of your eyes in person, send them by mail to Arising, Listasafn Reykjavíkur, Tryggvagata 17, 101 Reykjavík or send them by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hmm. Wonder what her son thinks of this project.
