'Apotheosis' was filmed from a hot-air balloon, capturing overviews of the clear blue sky. Made in the same year, the camera in 'FLY' follows several flies as they alight on the naked body of a woman, which then tracks away to film views of the sky out the window.

About

APOTHEOSIS (1970)

16mm film, colour, sound, 17 minutes 49 seconds

Dir. John Lennon and Yoko Ono

FLY (1970)

16mm, colour, sound, 24 minutes

Dir. Yoko Ono

Inspired by Ono’s earlier work, Sky TV (1966), Apotheosis was filmed from a hot-air balloon, capturing overviews of the clear blue sky. Made in the same year, the camera in FLY follows several flies as they alight on the naked body of a woman, which then tracks away to film views of the sky out the window. The film FLY is drawn from the score, FILM NO.13/FLY, by Yoko Ono (1968).

Followed by a discussion with Dr Amy Tobin, Curator at Kettle's Yard and Lecturer in the History of Art, University of Cambridge, and Gabriella Daris, art historian and curator, moderated by Dr Prerona Prasad, Exhibitions and Programming Manager, The Heong Gallery, and Q&A.

This screening is part of YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR... (2 March – 31 December 2019), Yoko Ono’s first-ever exhibition in Cambridge. Featuring over ninety early, recent and new works, most of which are participatory and will evolve as the exhibition unfolds, YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR… will offer the opportunity to immerse ourselves fully within Ono’s multifaceted world, demonstrating the wide-ranging scope of her artistic practice, spanning an array of media including text, painting, sculpture, installation, performance, event, music, film and video.

A diverse programme of events including interventions, installations, performances, screenings and symposia will take place at Lady Mitchell Hall, The Heong Gallery, Howard Theatre, Alison Richard Building, Ruskin Gallery, Mumford Theatre and Cambridge Junction as well as many public sites in the city. 

​Exhibition curated by Gabriella Daris.
