Retry

昨晩ようやく教会の文化イベント担当者から返信が来て、私がキュレートするグループ展の開催に関して、もう今年は予約で一杯で無理との事でした。でもその他の教会を複数紹介してくれたので早速今日その中の一つに連絡を取りました。このグループ展は完全に私の個人的活動でありギャラリーとかの後ろ盾が無いので、やはり不利なのかもしれません。でも教会は一つでないので数打てば当たると信じます。諦めたらそこで試合終了(スラムダンク)!

Last night, at last, I got a reply from a manager who is in charge of the cultural events at church, regarding the group exhibition I curate. Unfortunately, the booking in this year was already full, but she introduced me the other churches where several events are held periodically, so immediately I contacted one of them today. This group exhibition is completely my personal activity and has no connections such as gallery, so it might be disadvantageous. However, there’re many churches here, “She who shoots often, hits at last.” or “the game is over as soon as you give up” (quoted from slam dunk).

Rügen

旅行の行き先はRügenというバルト海に面した島にしようと思っています。友人の1人がこの島出身で最近そこの写真を見せてくれたのですが、超美しくて行きたくなりました。別の友達からも同じくお勧めと言われてたのでgood coincidenceです^ ^久々の旅ワクワク☆

I’m planning to travel to Rügen, an island facing the Baltic Sea. One of my friends was from this island and recently showed me a picture of it, which was super beautiful. It’s a good coincidence because another friend said Rügen was amazing. I’m excited about my trip after a long time:)

Break

昨日は個展のオープニングがありました。生憎、天気が荒れ模様で好条件では無かったけど観に来て下さった方に感謝です。ドイツに来てから我ながらとても頑張って来たので、半年分位の疲れを今感じています。でも信頼できる人と場所に作品を託せて安心もしています。余談ですが、昨日友人に私のホロスコープのアセンダントを聞かれて、知らなかったので今日調べたら射手座でした。誕生日の星座も射手座。めっちゃ射手座の特徴通りの人生を歩んでるような笑。取り敢えず少し休憩して、ドイツ国内を旅行しようと思っています^ ^

Yesterday the opening party of my exhibition was held. I’m grateful to visitors though it was a bad weather like a little storm. I’ve been doing my best since I came to Germany, so I feel an accumulation of fatigue just now. However, I’m relieved to entrust the works to a reliable person and place. As an aside, my friend asked me about my horoscope ascendant yesterday, and I didn’t know it, so I looked it up today and found it in Sagittarius. The constellation of my birthday is also Sagittarius. I feel like I’m living a life that is very characteristic of Sagittarius lol. Anyways, I’ll take a short break and trip somewhere in Germany:)

Installation

今日は絵の設置を行なって来ました。設置の度に、絵の配置決めや間隔の調節などは大変な作業だと感じます。でも何とか空間に上手く収まると嬉しくもあります。そして今日久々に最も大きな作品であるresonanceの梱包を解いたのですが、また小さな岩絵具の剥落を発見しました。とてもショック。明日応急処置しに行くけど、やはり今後に備えて材料の扱い方や画材同士の相性などを今一度研究せねばなりません。

Today I did an installation of the paintings at the cafe. Every time I install them, I feel that deciding the arrangement of the pictures and adjusting the intervals are difficult tasks. But also I’m happy if I manage to fit it in the space. And today I unpacked the biggest work, resonance, for the first time in a while, but I also found a small mineral pigment peeling off. Very shocking. I’m going to make an emergency repair tomorrow, but I still have to research how to handle new materials and compatibility between painting materials once again in preparation for the future.

Invitation card

招待状が完成したのでSNSに載せました。そして今気づいたのですが木曜日(Donnerstag)の綴りが間違っている!!まあ仕方ないので諦めます😅今は展示に向けて準備中です。楽しみです^ ^

The invitation card was completed and I posted it on SNS. But I just realized that I mistook the spelling of Donnerstag. OMG!! I gave up it’s unavoidable, anyways… Now I’m preparing for something towards exhibition. Looking forward to next Thursday:)
