Yoko Ono’s Art in Remote Japan

In a park in the town of Shimizu in the Tokachi Millennium Forest one of Yoko Ono’s most unusual creations can be found in an unusual and unexpected setting.

Sky TV” was first exhibited at Indica Gallery in London in 1966. A little more than a decade ago a version known as “Sky TV for Hokkaido,” dated 1966/2005, was installed in the forest in northern Japan in an old, abandoned, Japanese-style farmhouse.
