(Book). John Lennon once described her as "the world's most famous unknown artist: everybody knows her name, but nobody knows what she does." Many people are aware of her art, and her music has always split crowds, from her caterwauling earliest work to her later dance numbers, but how many people have looked at Yoko Ono's decades-spanning career and varied work in total and asked the simple question, "Is it any good?" From her earliest work with the Fluxus group and especially her relationship with John Cage, through her enigmatic pop happenings (where she met John Lennon), her experimental films, cryptic books, conceptual art, and her long recording career that has vacillated between avant-garde noise and proto-new wave, earning the admiration of other artists while generally confusing the public at large who often sees her only in the role of the widow Lennon, Reaching Out with No Hands is the first serious, critical, wide-ranging look at Yoko Ono the artist and musician. A must-read for art and music fans interested in going beyond the stereotyped observations of Yoko as a Lennon hanger-on or inconsequential avant noisemaker.

HASH(0x97533750) von 5 Sternen Personal, Beautiful, Timeless 29. September 2012
Von MIKE EDISON - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Lisa Carver's astonishingly personal and original REACHING OUT WITH NO HANDS: RECONSIDERING YOKO ONO is one of those rare jewels that somehow snuck through the cracks of a cynical publishing world -- It is not a biography or a monograph, more like an extended thought piece or series of reflections on a woman whose career and art are unfortunately much maligned as is she (for somehow, apocryphally, being the catalyst for the Beatles demise), and were in much need of a fresh look. Every page of this small but vibrant volume is a joy, whether Carver is ruminating on Yoko's art or music or her role as mother or widow, she never fails to find a piece of her own heart to bring to the story. Where others might have failed with this approach, taking the subject too personally, Carver achieves a sort of freedom and turns what could have been an academic exercise into an emotionally charged but exquisitely intellectual adventure. An unexpected, transcendent pleasure. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9752eae0) von 5 Sternen You don't know what you think you know about Yoko... 25. November 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
The average person thinks that she is "that Japanese woman who married Beatle John," or worse, a demon that offends the eyes and ears. Lisa Carver shows Yoko as she is - one of the most radical (in the best way) artists of all time. To know Yoko's work will blow away your assumptions about that art "is for" - and for that matter, what life is for. Time to pick some "Grapefruit."

HASH(0x97335b7c) von 5 Sternen Yoko in Lisaland: An abstract trip down the rabbit hole... 3. November 2012
Von Mike Fey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Anything Lisa writes is worth reading. Her new book on Yoko is highly personal yet very insightful. Most people in the western world who know Yoko only via her music and as "John Lennon's wife who broke up the Beatles", and MAYBE her book Grapefruit, know only a small part of her and her life. Especially her life as a major player in the Fluxus movement and art world. Her work already had it's fans (and detractors) well before a certain Mr. Lennon came into her life. Personally speaking - with the exceptions of her first album, Life With The Lions and Fly - I wish the Lennon connection had never happened. Yes it made her world famous, but it also made her reviled by most and turned her focus from an artist with a wonderful sense of humor, a great sense of concept and a truly unique sense of abstraction into the disliked wife of one of the most famous musicians in the world. People forget that Yoko already had a life well before Lennon.

Lisa's book is like being directly injected into the brain of the author while she meditates at length on Yoko herself and Yoko's place in the world and as an artist and as a woman in the greater scheme of things filtered through the mind of a woman who's cultural references are probably much greater than yours and who's ability to view things and people without judgement, with genuine interest, passion and an utterly charming innate ability to fascinate makes her thee PERFECT person to write a book about Yoko Ono.

Even if you hate Yoko you should still buy this book. It might even make YOU reconsider...

HASH(0x97342a5c) von 5 Sternen Outsider Artist 11. Januar 2013
Von Suzinne Barrett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The time just might be right for a reappraisal of Yoko Ono. As a subject, Yoko comes with many problems: she's so different and emotionally remote. Yoko's has always been defiantly an outsider in her creative outlook. How does one wrap one's mind around Yoko Ono? Lisa Carver gives a full accounting of Yoko's wild and woolly art projects. Can't say I understand any of them because they're all way out there.

Lisa Carver does an admirable job of presenting her subject, but sometimes she goes off track. In fact, Hitler gets extended attention, but is there any connection? Some of this has a stream of consciousness feel, and the prose doesn't contain a standard structure. This book is less an overview of Yoko Ono and can be better described as Lisa Carver's mediations on Yoko Ono. Admirably, Ms. Carver goes to bat for Yoko, valiantly defending her against the reasons why Yoko is so reviled by so many. And in these efforts, some seriously valid points are made, although they're not altogether convincing. This doesn't go against Lisa Carver's authorial ability, because Yoko Ono's personality and artistic endeavors remain enigmatic and resist explanation. After all, there's no one else even remotely like Yoko, is there?

Toward the very end of the book, we get into the nitty gritty - the appalling stories of Yoko's treatment of John Lennon's first son, Julian and, of course, her intrusions into the Beatles' musical circle. (Didn't even know that John Lennon's blood stained shirt and shattered spectacles were offered up for sale as artistic statements.) Everyone knows how Paul McCartney has long held extremely strong feelings against Yoko. After all, she had the nerve to assert herself during the Beatles' last studio sessions at Abbey Road, and how dare she? Who invited her or asked for her output? Upon closer analysis, throwing Yoko into the mix was probably masterminded by John Lennon himself. What a surefire way to bring the band to its knees! Certainly, John Lennon had his own antagonistic leanings and what a perfect partner Yoko proved in this regard. She was John's happy henchman and played that role to the very hilt.

Update: At the ripe old age of 79, Yoko's still staging protests. On Friday, January 11, 2013, Yoko Ono and son Sean were in Albany, New York protesting hydraulic fracturing. I love that.
