Christian Boltanski at Museum of Art, Osaka

Museum is one of my favourite place, so when i visited Osaka last week, The National Museum of Art, Osaka should be on my bucket list.

Christian Boltanski Exhibition at The National Museum of Art, Osaka

Then, here i was on march 3rd, 2019

I had the opportunity to see an exhibition from Christian Boltanski, it called “Lifetime“. The entire exhibition room was dark and full of lights, somehow it feels magical and gloomy. The exhibition began with L’Homme qui tousse (I don’t know how to pronounce it), It is one of Botanski’s first films. I have no idea of what the film telling about, refers to the source that I have, it shows the pain of a solitary man who is spitting blood.

I photographed some installations at the exhibition. But I enjoyed it more with my eyes. I was amazed that many visitors were not busy with cameras.

Honestly, I don’t understand some of the installations at the exhibition. I remember, when I visited the Yayoi Kusama exhibition I was very impressed, but I didn’t understand.
Thankfully, the guidebook helped me to understand it, even though it wasn’t much.

I always wondered what the artists thought to make a work that was difficult to understand.
Or indeed art doesn’t need to be understood?
