About

This piece is an obvious and humorous homage to one of the keystones in modern art Yoko Ono’s piece “Yes painting” from 1966. By inverting the scale of the ladder and changing the word yes to no and playing on the negative/ positive of the word NO/ ON, there is  a duality that allows the viewer to not only think about the positive affirmation of the original but to choose how to interpret this anomalous presentation. The piece references the institutional domain which once allowed the viewer to climb a ladder to see Yoko Ono’s Yes, but over time, erected a barrier between the viewer and the affirmation by physically stopping the viewer from touching the work.
