From Beijing to Stuttgart… I was invited to exhibit at Matthias Kueper Gallery. The show included new pieces from my recent residency in Beijing and a selection of earlier works on paper, currently on tour. Special thanks to Matthias Kueper and Marie Louise Kueper for a great opening and their support during the exhibition.
In May, I was invited to present my artworks and video installation in the temple gounds to the monks at Wutun monastery. This monastery is reknowned for its beautiful thangka paintings, many of which adorn the main temple in Lhasa. It was an experience I will never forget and also a great honor to then receive a blessing ceremony from seven monks. I was very humbled and grateful to be the first woman to have had the privilege of ceremony in this sacred place.
Visiting Wutun Monastery, Qinghai (Autonomous Tibetan Prefecture), the temple complex, the city of Rebgong and learning about the process of traditional thangka painting.
