I could get 5 recommendation letters somehow. In all likelihood I can get a visa, maybe. From now on I’ll adjust all contents of documents so that there’s no contradiction. Hope everything’s gonna be all right:)
My participation in the group exhibition was decided before I knew it 🙂 This morning, below flyer was sent to me, I was surprised. And the picture on the flyer is now in Japan, I might make similar one immediately. It’ll be held at a gallery in Berlin Neukölln from September 6th to 8th. I’ll play the piano at the party on 8th ♪
Probably the most important thing in getting visa is to gain recommendation letters from a local in Germany that promises me future job. I ask two gallerists I met last year and friends of artist to write it now. Eg, “I want her to stay here longer because I wanna work with her “, etc:) I really appreciate their cooperation even though everyone is busy. I still continue to make the necessary documents, (I am not good at paper works though).
I made a cover letter attached with CV. In the cover letter, I write a specific plan, and my policy as an artist. Recently, I’ve finally come to understand what is called self management. When I was an office worker, I got a monthly salary when I was just doing the job given by bosses, but now I can’t. However, I rather enjoy my current job of finding what I want to do and realizing it. I am planning to collaborate with various things if the wooden craft art work currently being produced is successful. For example, wooden musical instruments and furniture. I want to collaborate with a German craftsman one day:)
As a result of the considerations, I decided to join only biennale in Hamburg. There is a size regulation for the painting in the participation condition, and the flamingo one I drew in Berlin last year fits within the regulation, so I will exhibit it. But I need to change the title of painting and match the description of it to the theme of exhibition “hydrogen” (Wasserstoff). I’ll make an effort to make application letters to biennale and documents for visa:)
I don’t know why but a gallery’s owner invited me as a pianist to an opening party at her gallery where I hold my solo exhibition last year. It was thankful for applause to my play, but I want to be more nice player lol.
I found out the cancellation of the date of visa application, so I transferred my date of application from November to end of September. And my artist friend who is an also yoga master introduced me a biennale in Hamburg and exhibition in Ulm, I wanna join them. For the biennale, I need to make a new work and its deadline is end of September, but not sure I can do it while preparing a visa application. However, it’s a big opportunity for me to make connections and achievements in Germany. I should set priorities because I have to do something a lot.
