Tonight Yoko Ono returns to Iceland to celebrate the relighting of her outdoor sculpture, the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER on Viðey Island in Reykjavik, which she unveiled last year.
From 9 Oct – 15 Oct as a gift to the people of Iceland, Yoko Ono has gifted free IMAGINE PEACE Tours to Viðey, departing weather permitting, 8pm from Skarfabakki harbour in Reykjavik. Boats carry a maximum of 150 people and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
All visitors will receive a free gift from Yoko, a guided tour of the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER, and the Viðeyjarstofa Café will be open during the tour, serving light refreshments.
In the Café there is a Yoko Ono Wish Tree.
Visitors can write out wishes and tie them to the branches.
The ferry departs Viðey at 10pm. More details here.
The words ‘IMAGINE PEACE’ are inscribed on the wishing well base in 24 different languages. The Tower itself is composed of a tall column of light, which is visible every year from John’s birthday on Oct 9th until December 8th, the day of his death. The electricity for the light comes entirely from geothermal power.
