Vernissage: Essence of Wondering

The long awaited day had come! Before the first guests came in, I took a few more pictures of my show. Later it really got too crowded for that. Many familiar faces had shown up, some surprise guests and also many people that I did not know. It was so moving to see them all in this special place!

The mayor of Zeulenroda payed me a huge compliment in his opening speech when he said that my works reminded him of Joseph Beuys. I loved the guitar and flute music (by the local music school) that framed the opening ceremony. Ute Arnold, museum director, called my show “enchanting”. That word also fits the gift that I received from the museum: tea, a little owl and two old books (see pictures at the end).

I was also delighted about the flowers, my first sales and, especially, the personal words that guests found to thank me. My vernissage could not have been more beautiful than that!
thank you for the flowers
The “Essence of Wondering” is open for visitors until January, 19. If you can’t make it to Zeulenroda, have a look at my flickr-set.

The Essence of Wondering

Essence of Wondering - ExhibitionThe poster is going into print within the next days, the event calendar of the museum in Zeulenroda is already listing it – my very first exhibition!

I am just making a list of all the pieces that I want to show in the exhibition… Since spring I have been tinkering with fairy tales and with the question, if it is possible to tell the essence of a story in a picture. In the end, I made a lot of pictures and objects. Too many for the Atrium.
Now I have difficult choices to make. Which pieces are really good? A typical question in fairy tales! This question will definitely be on the show, that is already decided.
