Reflecting on an Exhibition Experience

As I sit down to write this reflection, I find myself in a sea of emotions — gratitude, pride, and an overwhelming sense of fulfillment. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of creativity, anticipation and, sometimes, anxiety. It was wonderful to get lost in a production phase for an exhibition but the organizing of everything, like transporting the artworks from Vienna to Germany, was a challenge on its own.

My vision for this exhibition was clear: to create a space where art transcends boundaries, provokes thought, and sparks conversation. And what better setting to bring this vision to life than a wonderful gallery? The anticipation leading up to the opening night was tough for an anxious person like me.


As the doors swung open on that evening, the gallery came alive. Each piece curated and displayed, weaving together a narrative that invited viewers to embark on a journey of introspection and discovery.

As I stood there, a profound sense of gratitude washed over me. Gratitude for the opportunity to share my passion with the world, gratitude for the unwavering support of friends and collaborators, and gratitude for the privilege of bearing witness to the transformative power of art.


In the days that followed, the opening night slowly faded into memory and I found myself reflecting on the journey that had brought me to this moment. The challenges overcome, the lessons learned, and the moments of doubt overcome by unwavering determination — all were integral chapters in the story of "Are We There Yet?"

So, are we there yet? Perhaps not in the literal sense, but in the journey of self-discovery and artistic expression, every step forward is a destination in itself. And as I look ahead to the next chapter, I do so with a sense of purpose and a belief in the power of art to illuminate, inspire, and transcend.
