My favourite celebration date of the year is here: summer solstice. At least in the Northern hemisphere, of course, some of you celebrate the opposite tonight. But wherever you are, if you celebrate, may your fires burn bright, may your rituals be strong! Acta non verba!

Here’s a little cut together of impressions from my exhibition & installation “KultHaus”, that took part this whitsun at Torhaus Dölitz. Upon my return home I focused on unpacking, while I also started to work on two new sculptures. I hope I will be able to write a more detailed review later, right now I am still enjoying the silence after those days filled with humans and their voices. Thank you to everyone who came to my help to make this exhibition & installation possible, and thank you to the audience for the many kind words!
Beltane, Walpurgisnacht, or just a day off work tomorrow (not for me though, the preparations for the exhibition are keeping me busy), whatever you celebrate under the full moon tonight, enjoy it!
For me personally, the best time of the year starts now, spring has fully arrived and summer awaits, the next winter seems far away. For me it is a time of planning new journeys and sketching new work pieces. I will also follow some personal tradition of spring cleaning today (and probably tomorrow in the atelier as well). The hibernation is finally over. That is, what I celebrate.
