I went to the Yokohama Museum of Art to see the 8th Yokohama Triennale.

The 8th Yokohama Triennale started in March. The support program I have been conducting has only one more session left. Here I went out to the Yokohama Museum of Art.

Dirk Bleckmann, leave no stain.

I went to the venue a little on edge, having heard and seen people’s impressions of the 8th Yokohama Triennale in advance. There were some works that I didn’t photograph that had strong colors, materials and messages. There were also exhibits that made me feel as if my body was becoming heavier the more I looked at them, and exhibits that made me feel as if various things were penetrating my body. I was confused by the fact that there were some things I wanted to look away from, and others I wanted to burn into my eyes, but I’m glad I went. Perhaps because I was constantly being asked questions, it became a valuable opportunity for me to rediscover what I am interested in.

I sat and listened for a while to the sounds of the hall, a mixture of footsteps, small talk, and the sounds of the exhibit. A light rain outside, a small fountain blowing regularly. There were various sounds that would pass me by if I didn’t stop.

The Tale of the Heike Listened to by Heike Biwa at Yokohama|Yokohama|Chikubushimamoude, please feel free to attend. You can sit on a yoga mat or lean against a wall. If you feel sleepy, you can go to sleep. You may not have many chances to hear The Tale of the Heike Listened to by Heike Biwa, but we hope you will join us for this kind of concert.

[about this concert]
A concert of the Tale of the Heike, listened to in one’s sleep (while lying down), accompanied by the Heike biwa. You may fall asleep if you feel sleepy. The location is a small underground studio in front of Yokohama Stadium with a capacity of 8 people. Other than lying on a yoga mat, the only stage set-up is the sound of the Heike biwa and the narrator’s voice. You do not need to know the story. As you listen, why don’t you construct in your mind the scenery of the story as you each feel it? Because we live in a time when so many things are changing at a dizzying pace, close your eyes for a moment. Let the light shine on your own senses. I hope you will join me in the world of the Tale of the Heike, which lies on the border between dream and reality, while freely imagining the flowers and plants of Chikubushima.

The Tale of the Heike, Vol. 7 “Chikubushimamoude
Taira no Tsunemasa, a skilled poet and orchestrator, was deeply moved by the natural beauty of Chikubushima, which he visited on his way to war. Feeling that the island was a sacred place, he prayed to the gods and played his biwa. Then…. If you listen to the music and reflect on the movement of Kyomasa’s heart, something unseen may appear at the end of the piece.
