Yoko and Ono is an installation work, which consists of her own authentic Chinese wedding bed frame wherein around 300 red/orange ping-pong balls dance in the air, blown by more then 400 small fans which are installed in the base of the bed frame. The balls jump along different heights. The paneled bed frame is wrapped in plastic sheet. It looks like molecule structures going mad inside the cells.


The bed symbolizes the framework of society, of structure. The importance of marriage represented by this specific bed frame evenly expresses this dominant pressure. The balls inside represent individuals whom are limited by external norms and structures. Full of cynicism, she titles this piece with a wink Yoko and Ono, which calls to mind the romantic hippy image of the couple on top of their bed. The ‘excited’ ping-pong balls dance, almost rub each other, as if to arouse.
