Yoko oh no! This weekend (7 April), Toronto police announced that they are searching for a female suspect between 55 and 60 years of age who is believed to have stolen a Yoko Ono-inscribed rock. The rock, which forms part of a larger interactive installation at Toronto’s Gardiner Museum, was supposedly taken after a meditation session during the Yoko Ono: Riverbed exhibition.
For the show, the 85-year old artist and musician inscribed river rocks that had been shaped and moulded by water over time with words like “dream”, “wish”, and “remember.” They were then laid out to resemble a riverbed. Visitors were encouraged to meditate with the stones, returning them when finished. The $17,000-rock in question had “love yourself” written on it in block capitals and has not been seen since 12 March.
Toronto police media officer Gary Long told local newspaper The Star: “It’s a totally interactive exhibition, there’s a bunch of rocks on the ground and people can walk up to them and pick them up. She (the suspect) just picked it up and walked away with it.”
