嗨，大家好！ 我叫XXX。 今天，我想向大家介紹世界上最令人興奮但又最容易被誤解的女性藝術家之一。 她與約翰·列儂（John Lennon）的婚姻以及甲殼蟲樂隊的破裂常常掩蓋了小野對概念和行為藝術的巨大貢獻。 但是，對于小野的作品并非真正的藝術，總是會有敵意的回應和很大的分歧。 盡管如此，小野由于她的活動主義持續了半個多世紀，因此獲得了觀察家倫理獎的終身成就獎。Page 1:
Hi, everyone! My name is XXX. Today, I’d like to introduce one of the most exciting, yet also the most misunderstood female artists in the world, Yoko Ono. Her marriage with John Lennon and association with the Beatles breakup often obscures Ono’s great contribution to conceptual and performance art. However, there are always hostile responses and considerable disagreements towards Ono’s works as not a true art. Despite that, Ono has won the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Observer Ethical Awards for her activism lasting over half a century.
小野洋子（Yoko Ono）生于1933年2月18日在東京，成為1960年代有影響力的概念和行為藝術藝術家和音樂家。 小野在一個富有的日本家庭中長大，她擅長的幾乎所有工作，尤其是在學習方面。
1952年，她成為日本學院大學的第一位學習哲學的女性。 明年，她移居美國，在莎拉·勞倫斯學院學習代寫 和音樂，但入學后不久又輟學了。
Yoko Ono, born February 18th, 1933 in Tokyo, becomes an influential artist and musician of conceptual and performance art in the 1960s. Ono grew up in a wealthy Japanese family, and she excelled at almost everything she did, especially in study.
In 1952, she became the first woman to study philosophy at Japan’s Gakushuin University. Next year, she moved to the U.S. to study writing and music at Sarah Lawrence College, but again dropped out shortly after the enrollment.
After dropping out, she became involved in the Fluxus movement, and greatly influenced the international development of Visual and Conceptual art, filmmaking, and experimental music.
小野在多種媒體上創作了驚人的作品，包括她的互動概念藝術，實驗音樂，電影制作和女權主義，嗯，也許是她與約翰·列儂的第三次婚姻。 她的組合作品曾在現代藝術博物館的一場名為《小野洋子：一個女人的展覽》的展覽中展出，1960年至1970年。 后來，洋子在2009年威尼斯雙年展上獲得了終身成就金獅獎。Page 3:
Ono produced amazing artworks in multiple medias, including her interactive conceptual art, experimental music, filmmaking, and feminism, um…., maybe also her third marriage with John Lennon. Her combined work has been exhibited in a unique show at The Museum of Modern Art, entitled Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1970. Later Yoko received a Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 2009 Venice Biennale.
甲殼蟲樂隊解散后，洋子很快于1970年成立了自己的樂隊，塑料小野樂隊，創作了各種前沿作品，包括《飛》和《近似無限的宇宙》。列儂去世后，她一直從事藝術家和活動家的工作。 “許愿樹”和“想象中的和平塔”都旨在保留列儂的記憶，并向所有人傳遞和平信息。Page 4:
After a journal to Japan in 1962–64, Ono married filmmaker Anthony Cox (divorced 1969), and continued to build her reputation in the United States with his help. The most famous work, cut piece, was composed in 1964, which I would expand later.
In 1966, Ono and her husband Cox began making films, including the risqué No. 4. Sam year Ono met Lennon, and impressed him with the interactive work of Ceil painting, which invites the audience to climb a ladder and use the magnifying glass hanging beside it to see the word "YES."
In 1968, Ono and Lennon started experimental films and recordings of their album Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins, whose cover controversially featured a photograph of them naked. The two got married in 1969, which brought her instant celebrity. During their honeymoon, Ono and Lennon performed a weeklong antiwar protest in their honeymoon suite, called bed-in, to raise attention toward social justice.
After the breakup of Beatles, Yoko soon started her own band, Plastic Ono Band in 1970, creating a variety of cutting-edge works, including Fly and Approximately Infinite Universe. She keeps working as an artist and activist after Lennon’s death. Both ‘wish trees’ and ‘the imagine peace tower’ are intended for preserve the memory of Lennon and deliver a message of peace to all people.
Sadly, Yoko is not best-known for her vanguard conceptual and multi-media art, but her marriage to John Lennon, even though her work pushes the boundaries of what art can be, in order to inspire wide social change in her audiences. One of the clear examples of Yoko’s groundbreaking performances is “Cut Piece” from 1964. This piece was performed at least four more times in Japan, London and the United States.
Yoko’s childhood experience has strong impacts on the key theme of her artworks, ‘Peace’. She is the daughter of a Japanese banker and a pianist, and lived a wealthy childhood. However, during the second world war, Tokyo was hit with massive booms, and the economy was in regression. Ono’s happy, wealthy life was destroyed. And that’s why Ono always try to add the peruse for peace in her artworks.
As for Cut piece, Ono kneels on an empty stage with a pair of scissors in front of her. Nothing was said except the outline of the performance, i.e. all audience members were welcome to come on stage one by one, cut off any piece of her clothing and take the piece back to their seat as a souvenir until Ono decided when to end. This work is intended to address the issue of sexual violence and her stance to feminism. Also, the way Ono’s clothing was cut into small pieces can replicate the impacts of bomb fell on people’s clothing in Japan, and remind the audience members of the tragedies caused by war and the importance of peace actions.
Cut Piece是小野洋子（Yoko Ono）最著名的藝術品之一，至今仍是女權主義和以人體為中心的藝術品和表演的先驅。 令人耳目一新的交互式表演形式的使用確實給觀眾留下了深刻的印象。 讓我們觀看這段視頻，以了解觀眾的觀看方式。 （打戲劇）
顯然，起初，觀眾很猶豫-他們上來剪她的襯衫或裙子的小塊，然后迅速跑回座位。 但是，隨著表演的進行，他們變得更大膽了。 一個男人站了起來，剪掉了胸罩的前部，另一個剪掉了胸帶，小野不得不用她的手臂和手遮蓋她的裸露的身體。 沒有明確的結局，作品可能會不斷變化，并使觀眾感到驚訝。Page 6:
Cut Piece is one of Yoko Ono’s most famous artworks, which still remains a precursor in feminist and body-centered art pieces and performances. The refreshing use of an interactive performance form really gives the audience a strong impression. Let’s watch the video of this Piece to understand how audiences view it. (hit the play)
It is clear that at first, the audience is hesitant- they came up and cut small pieces of her shirt or skirt and quickly ran back to their seats. However, as the performance went on, they became bolder. A man came up and cut off the front of her bra, and another cut off the strap, Ono had to use her arms and hands to cover up her naked body. Without a definitive ending, the work could be constantly changing and surprise the viewers.
我要討論的Ono的第二部作品是1961年創作的女高音配樂。該作品包括一間空房間，一側寫上文字：“逆風尖叫/撞墻/逆天”。 另一端是麥克風和揚聲器。 然后，小野或其他人可以參加。 就像照片中顯示的那樣，這件作品于2010年安裝在現代藝術博物館的大型中庭中。但是，由于小野先生的不滿，該博物館最終拒絕了大野美術館的演出，原因是大聲抱怨。 難以忍受的聲音，很難想象。Page 7:
The second work of Ono that I like to discuss is Voice Piece for Soprano composed in 1961. The work consists of an empty room with text on one side that reads "Scream against the wind/against the wall/against the sky." At the other end is a microphone and loudspeakers. Then Ono or others could participate. Just like showed in the picture, this work was installed in the massive atrium of the Museum of Modern Art in 2010. However, against Ono’s intention, the museum ultimately turned the volume down due to s large number of complaints to the intolerable sound. Intolerable sound, it’s hard to imagine.
為了方便您理解，讓我們觀看小野在博物館表演的視頻。 也許那時您會有一個清晰的愿景，請注意它可能會有點吵。 （打戲劇）
對于許多人來說，這項工作很難理解和欣賞，因為它們會大聲喊叫，發出奇怪的聲音和凝結的尖叫聲。 但是，請嘗試考慮其背后的含義。 這是一項互動作品，旨在代表小野對機構的反威權立場，并打破博物館禮節的典型規則。 小野邀請藝術界充滿激情的混亂者解放那些傾聽者。Page 8:
To make it easy for you to understand, let’s watch the video of Ono’s performance in the museum. Maybe then you would have a clear vision, notice that it can get a little noisy. (hit the play)
To many people, this work is hard to understand and appreciate, with those load yelling, weird noises, and blood-curdling screams. But, try to think about the meaning behind. It was an interactive work designed to represent Ono's anti-authoritarian stance toward institutions and break the typical rule of museum etiquette. Ono invites passionate chaos into the art to liberate those who listen.
今天，小野洋子繼續一如既往地強烈表達自己的藝術創作。 她的最新事業包括爭取槍支管制和抗壓裂運動，并以她的強大影響力吸引人們的注意力。 盡管她關于2050年在地球上建立天堂的想法有些空想，但她永無止境的追求和對和平的希望將繼續通過小野洋子的作品激發我們的靈感。Page 9:
Today, Yoko Ono continues to express her artistic practice strongly as ever. Her latest causes include campaigning for gun control and against fracking keep getting people attention with her strong influences. Even though her idea that we will have heaven on Earth in 2050 is somewhat utopian, her never-ending pursue and hope for peace would keep inspire us through Yoko Ono’s artworks.
