GRAPEFRUIT, YOKO ONO, 1964

[Support us with a symbolic coffee! It is a huge help for us to keep up with our work!]

Following the article of yesterday about the Fluxus movement, here we are to present you a work by Yoko Ono (one of the most famous members of the Fluxus group): the artist book called Grapefruit (if you want to buy it, here’s the link!).

In this artist book she included drawings and what she called “instructions”, brief sentences with actual instructions for the audience to follow. The concept behind it is that it’s the reader who should create the work of art: Yoko Ono is not the artist here, but more a teacher. Of course all the instructions are unique and creative, demosntrating how she remains the artist after all. But everyone can try some of them and feel the artistic spirit inside of you!

Below you have some examples of her instructions, some of them are serious, some of them are figurative, but they are all very suggestive and interesting.
