Ono To Get Naked For Art And Peace

JOHN LENNON's widow YOKO ONO is getting naked in the name of art - and world peace.

The controversial Japanese artist - who was married to the former BEATLE musician until his murder in 1980 - is restaging her famed CUT PIECE conceptual work, which she originally performed in 1964, where an audience is invited to cut off pieces of her clothing until she is naked.

Ono, 70, will perform her piece at Paris' THEATRE LE RANELAGH on 15 September (03), which she hopes will promote world peace.

She explains, "Cut Piece is my hope for World Peace. When I first performed this work, in 1964, I did it with some anger and turbulence in my heart.

"This time I do it with love for you, for me, and for the world.

"Come and cut a piece of my clothing wherever you like the size of less than a postcard, and send it to the one you love."
