嗨，大家好！ 我叫XXX。 今天，我想向大家介绍世界上最令人兴奋但又最容易被误解的女性艺术家之一。 她与约翰·列侬（John Lennon）的婚姻以及甲壳虫乐队的破裂常常掩盖了小野对概念和行为艺术的巨大贡献。 但是，对于小野的作品并非真正的艺术，总是会有敌意的回应和很大的分歧。 尽管如此，小野由于她的活动主义持续了半个多世纪，因此获得了观察家伦理奖的终身成就奖。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日在东京，成为1960年代有影响力的概念和行为艺术艺术家和音乐家。 小野在一个富有的日本家庭中长大，她擅长的几乎所有工作，尤其是在学习方面。
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.
小野在多种媒体上创作了惊人的作品，包括她的互动概念艺术，实验音乐，电影制作和女权主义，嗯，也许是她与约翰·列侬的第三次婚姻。 她的组合作品曾在现代艺术博物馆的一场名为《小野洋子：一个女人的展览》的展览中展出，1960年至1970年。 后来，洋子在2009年威尼斯双年展上获得了终身成就金狮奖。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.
甲壳虫乐队解散后，洋子很快于1970年成立了自己的乐队，塑料小野乐队，创作了各种前沿作品，包括《飞》和《近似无限的宇宙》。列侬去世后，她一直从事艺术家和活动家的工作。 “许愿树”和“想象中的和平塔”都旨在保留列侬的记忆，并向所有人传递和平信息。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）最著名的艺术品之一，至今仍是女权主义和以人体为中心的艺术品和表演的先驱。 令人耳目一新的交互式表演形式的使用确实给观众留下了深刻的印象。 让我们观看这段视频，以了解观众的观看方式。 （打戏剧）
显然，起初，观众很犹豫-他们上来剪她的衬衫或裙子的小块，然后迅速跑回座位。 但是，随着表演的进行，他们变得更大胆了。 一个男人站了起来，剪掉了胸罩的前部，另一个剪掉了胸带，小野不得不用她的手臂和手遮盖她的裸露的身体。 没有明确的结局，作品可能会不断变化，并使观众感到惊讶。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.
我要讨论的Ono的第二部作品是1961年创作的女高音配乐。该作品包括一间空房间，一侧写上文字：“逆风尖叫/撞墙/逆天”。 另一端是麦克风和扬声器。 然后，小野或其他人可以参加。 就像照片中显示的那样，这件作品于2010年安装在现代艺术博物馆的大型中庭中。但是，由于小野先生的不满，该博物馆最终拒绝了大野美术馆的演出，原因是大声抱怨。 难以忍受的声音，很难想象。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.
为了方便您理解，让我们观看小野在博物馆表演的视频。 也许那时您会有一个清晰的愿景，请注意它可能会有点吵。 （打戏剧）
对于许多人来说，这项工作很难理解和欣赏，因为它们会大声喊叫，发出奇怪的声音和凝结的尖叫声。 但是，请尝试考虑其背后的含义。 这是一项互动作品，旨在代表小野对机构的反威权立场，并打破博物馆礼节的典型规则。 小野邀请艺术界充满激情的混乱者解放那些倾听者。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，小野洋子继续一如既往地强烈表达自己的艺术创作。 她的最新事业包括争取枪支管制和抗压裂运动，并以她的强大影响力吸引人们的注意力。 尽管她关于2050年在地球上建立天堂的想法有些空想，但她永无止境的追求和对和平的希望将继续通过小野洋子的作品激发我们的灵感。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.
