I just need the light of Love here!!!

These photos refer to the opening of the exhibition of Yoko Ono in Warsaw CCA in September 2008, her performance 'Onochord' with flashlights and the art work 'My Mummy was beautiful'.
This event elicited among us different reflections. One concerns Love directed to neighbours, the second one brings the feministic accent to our krasnals society.

At the opening the light of love sent by Yoko Ono didn't get to the place that I needed it. Fortunately I took it home with me.
I am a mother, after my 30s, I like sex and as most women I need it. But I feel some imbalance in treating or presenting us as mechanical objects. Some parts of the body if they appear publicly, they are shown like sexual objects of desire, or opposite - without respect, in vulgar way. And I need just adoration; our genitals need the same love - also spiritual - as our souls and hearts.

Yoko Ono - I love you / Catholic voice at your home

The message "I love you" sent by Yoko Ono at her opening in Warsaw in September, as well as other spiritual suggestions, were just repetition from the hippie times, with no power today. They rather would be situated in the context of Polish Catholic fanaticism represented by its leader father Rydzyk. Yoko Yono keeps the fleshlight and sends the light to the public as to the worshippers of father Rydzyk.
