Looking at the calendar in the morning: 37 days left until the opening of the exhibition.
The preparations are getting hectic. Some time ago we, the curators, were meeting in Vienna to discuss the further steps of organizing the exhibition “project social media”. Together with the team of the gallery “Farbenklang” we agreed on a first plan how to arrange the exhibits. This was the birthday of “Components”. Since that moment I knew that we would be able to spread over a wall of 4 meters length.
Considering this wonderful and amazing space, my initial plan (a collage printed on paper or canvas) changed immediately to plan “B”: Components needs far more…The process of finding an idea has its own, very special rhythm – do you know that, too?
All of a sudden you stop sleeping at night, because there are a million of useful ideas in your head. The morning after – no idea at all is left, vanished in the sink of the shower! Then follows the “I do not sit at the table” – feeling, paper and pencil are waiting there. Instead you prefer eating while standing, drinking coffee in any other corner. You are starting to clean the house, go shopping, do the washing; you are turning to a perfect housewife! And there is also facebook –al these 1000 contacts have to be suddenly cared for. You are searching here and there, online, even switch the TV on!
But the paper on the table continues to dazzle in its white splendour.
This suffering lasts for one whole week until again good friends are helping. A little bit of lamenting via mail, fantasizing together, input from everywhere helps to open step by step the treasury of creative ideas.
Thanks soooooo much!
It´s ready, the concept of “Components”.
Since that moment, I turned to a charming lady again, said my husband.
