It was a beautiful confrontation.
It was like a Noh play. I spent some quality time reflecting on myself.
A big screen was very good.I appreciated the clearest Mindfulness , all over again.
A kind of minimalist exhibition, so sharp and fantastic.Austere yet somehow heartfelt atmosphere. Kunio Motoe （Professor at Tama Art University）
I lost track of time. Every moment passed with a movement, and I lost my sense of time.
Good old Barnett Newman. I’m from a generation that enthused over these things. I am happy that they firmly face on the younger
generation that tends to not appreciate them.
Wonderful! It made me want to see Newman’s works.
I felt the force of "Cathedra" that exposed the process of standing up with the performer.
She stood up, feeling the painting and the air... and obtaining power. I found the process of standing up impressive.
The way Takako Ihoda created, wove and formed moments “directly” was perhaps more of a dogmatic world than a performance. There are stories to the dances. Dancers must separate from themselves once. Ihoda’s continuous performance must be appreciated, like viewing a painting. What moved in the video was
Newman’s painting, not Ihoda. Then what was Ihoda doing? As I said before, she wasn’t performing. She just created, wove and formed moments directly. Like a painting.
