Simploring 2019 (40) La Maison D’Aneli in April

I got a hint from Maddy (Magda Schmidtzau) about the upcoming exhibtion at La Maison D’Aneli. It opened on April 3rd and I visited on March 31st while Aneli was still working. The exhibtion shows the art from Bachi Cheng, Calypso Applewyhte, Madga Schmidtzau, RazorZ and Aneli Abeyante herself and an installation from Iono Allen & Theda Tammas. In the entrance hall there’s a motorshow presented by Willem Koba.

Willem Koba is in Second Life for almost 12 years. He makes animated textures and mesh objects and runs a shop on the marketplace. At La Maison D’Aneli you see some of his motor vehicles in the entrance area.

I started my visit looking at the room with the art from Aneli Abeytante, who’s the owner and curator of La Maison D’Aneli. Looking at her steadily rotating and colour changing geometric objects, it’s no surprise, that Aneli writes about herself: “I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.”

Calypso Applewhyte is a SL Photographer from France, who joined SL in 2010. Her focus is the avatar itself as a means of expression to transport emotions. She processes her pcitures with Photoshop. The result is really impressive!

Maddy (Magda Schmidtzau), who gave me the hint for the early visit, joined SL in 2009. She’s a passionate photographer in RL and SL. In SL she’s always open to new possibilities and experiments, she tries to convey the magic that i see. At La Maison D’Aneli most of her exhibits show portraits and pictures of avatars, and like Calypso her pictures transport a lot of emotions . It’s intriguing looking at them and to picture a story around what you see.

RazorZ is in Second Life since 2010. He’s a builder and scripter and he makes sculptures. Like Willem Koba he runs his own store at the marketplace. At La Maison D’Aneli his exhibition space is full of very colourful pictures. I think these pictures were taken in RL and processed to enhance the colourfulness quite exterme. This way the pictures are real eye candies and you see the underlying picture only on a second glance. In his section at La Maison D’Aneli are also some sculptures, again colourful pieces. It’s hard to decide where to look at first.

Sofi (Bachi Cheng) is an artist painter and designer from France in RL & SL. He says himself about his art: “I love to paint Moments. Moments of life, Moments of Love, Moments so deep that you never want to forget them, Moments at the edge of orgasm or despair, just life like we ought to live it, plainly. Let me take you in the core of my Art.”
The pictures exhibited at La Maison D’Aneli are painted in RL and uploaded to SL. Sofi (Bachi Cheng) has an own website showing either stylised single persons or groups. Bachi’s style is unique.

Last but not least one room at La Maison D’Aneli shows an installaion from Iono Allen & Theda Tammas named “Samurai”. You enter the room through a Japanese gateway. In the room itself you can sit on hoovering cusions and watch a film, Samurei that is shown on all walls of the room allowing you to full dive into it. The film was made with Second Life and is about 20 minutes long. Quite fascinating what you can make with Second Life! In the room is also an animated avatar dancing. Just have a look :-).
Theda Tammas is in SL amost for 12 years. She has had already some exhibtions of her work and it is not the first time that I see an installation of her (see Choreography of a Tortured Soul and Dissected Soul).
Iono Allen is also almost 12 years in SL and from his profile I conclude that his passion are making films. He has some links to films about Theda’s former installation in his profile, just look it up. He made the fil “Samurai”, that is shown in the installation. The film can be seen also on vimeo here.

La Maison D’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.”

Thank you Aneli for another great exhibtion and thank you to all artists. Enjoy your visit – I did.
