my solo exhibition in cafe My first solo exhibition goes back 30 years. There is a north-south street called Kawabata-dori in Kyoto City. There is a small coffee shop in the middle of Shijo-dori and Gojo-dori, which is an art gallery coffee shop, and you can hold an exhibition if you pay the coffee fee of the customer you invited. I remembered that my senior at the university had a solo exhibition here, and I was introduced to him. Generally speaking, solo exhibitions are usually held at the rental art galleries around Sanjo, Teramachi, and Okazaki. However, I felt uncomfortable at that time. At that time, hadn’t reached the level of my own expression, and I thought it was too early to announce at the gallery. Also, there was no ambition to have someone see and evaluate it. From now on, I think it’s a pure idiot, or a defenseless first solo exhibition. But of course I can’t hold an exhibition like this from now on, and it’s a memory I want to cherish as a page within myself.
