‘Jutta and I had a discussion about failed paintings. Maybe the color wasn’t right or they were fucked-up in some way (physically, ideologically, or by situation). Our solution was to save them by blacking them out, canceling the image/object. A positive/negative, deconstruct to reconstruct, chaos to order to chaos… We decided to show these reclaimed paintings and dedicate the show to George Grosz’s Deathdada, caught in the flux between dissonance and consonance.’ Steven Parrino 2001
The verb “sognare” is Italian for dreaming and Yoko Ono has often stated that ‘A dream you dream alone is just a dream, but a dream you dream together is reality’. She has consistently expressed her faith in the power of positive wishing. As a Fluixus artist she likes to make instruction pieces like e.g. “Painting to be Constructed in Your Head” (1962). In many cases Yoko Ono affirms the power of the viewer, by inviting him to become a co-creator of the work.
