The installation was set up in the darkness of the gallery

After passing through the side of Roppongi Hills, I came to an alleyway that led to a building full of galleries. It's not a big building, but it's a gorgeous building that houses Tomio Koyama Gallery, ShugoArts, and Taka Ishii Gallery.

Each gallery specializes in a different field, but they all deal in contemporary art. Contemporary art. The mere mention of the word "contemporary art" makes it sound somewhat difficult. Perhaps it's too much to hope to understand contemporary art when I don't even know what art is. At any rate, I came here to see art that represents the present moment, not the refrigerated works of art in museums.

There was no way I could understand the artist's intentions just by looking at the work, so I just walked around the gallery. Unexpectedly, there were many people visiting the gallery. It seemed as if everyone was familiar with contemporary art and was enjoying the works. I didn't need to think, I just needed to feel, but it was doubtful that I could feel anything.
