Yesterday I walked through the Hyde Park for the first time and also stopped by the Serpentine Gallery to see To The Light, a major exhibition of the work of Yoko Ono. The exhibition includes several early works (e.g Cut Piece, 1964) as well as new projects like #smilesfilm.
'My ultimate goal in film-making is to make a film which includes a smiling face snap of every single human being in the world. Of course, I cannot go around the whole world and take the shots myself. I need cooperation...'Yoko Ono, 1967
People from all over the world can have their photos taken at the gallery or upload photos by theirselves to twitter or instagram with hashtag #smilesfilm. Go to http://www.smilesfilm.com/ to find out more and be part of something huge!
Later I had a coffee at Serpentine's summer pavilion, this year designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei, and left my wish on one of the Yoko Ono's wish trees. (The wish in the picture
isn't mine though)
The exhibition runs until 9 September, definitely go if you have a chance! I left with a smile on my face!
