Artist in Residence in Japan 2022 – Cancelled


1-30 April 2022
Artist in Residence, Kyoto, Japan
Journey No. 110  Cancelled

After two years of waiting for the corona virus to finally run out and I will be able to travel, I bought airplane tickets to Osaka, hoping to go to an Art Residency in Kyoto. But few weeks before fly, I got the information from Finnair, that the fly to Japan is cancelled. Even if Finnair were flying to Osaka, the trip would not be possible, because the fucking Russia started the war. How is possible to be in beautiful Japan, create art when people die? How can you leave a family when you never know will you see it again?

And this year the sakura will bloom without me…
