Art in Second Life 2021 (15) Ambre Singh Gallery at Noir’Wen City

I was invited for Sunday, January 1th, to attend the opening of another new gallery at Noir’Wen City – The Ambre Singh Gallery. I know Ambre Singh’s art from my visit to her gallery back in July 2020 (read here) and of course I was curious. It seems that Noir’Wen City develops more and more to a colony of artists, besides being an adult place, a vivid big town, a place for fairs and events and for taking pictures.

Ambre told me later that she had abandoned her land and that Noir’Wen City is the new home of her main gallery. As Ambre is a member of the Noir’Wen City team that makes perfectly sense and Ambre selected a fitting spot. The new Ambre Singh Gallery is located right next to the Pink Dildo Museum.

Right at the entrance into the gallery is a quote of Ambre written on the wall, it’s kind of her motto “Art is my soul masturbation. I do it for myself, but others can watch” … funny and true!
The gallery is located in a large old warehouse and has two floors. The walls are used to showcase Ambre’s pictures – and she made many pictures! On the ground floor are mostly erotic fun pictures. Ambre has a great sense of humor. I guess I grinned all the times when I visited. Oh my god, she has wit!

The second floor shows showcases Ambre’s SL pictures featuring herself in different situations and environment, And there’re some of Ambre’s “fake-pictures”, as I named them for myself. She made pictures of herself in the style of other painters, like da Vinci or Salvatore Dali. You recognize the style immediately but of course it is not Dali or da Vinci.

On the second floor is also an area with a rezzer. with 13 different scences, the “Rumi slideshow” and 9 picture collections. The picture collections consist of 4 picture collections with portraits “Ambre seen by” and 5 picture collection called “Great Painters”. In the “Great Painters” collections Ambre copied the style of other painters and made her own pictures in their style. I rezzed two of them, yet I didn’t know the artists she interpreted. Luckily Ambre provides exceprts from Wikipedia from them. The two painters I saw were William-Adolphe Bourguereau and Herbert James Draper.

Most of the 13 scenes in the rezzer area were already shown at Ambre’s old gallery, some are new though. This time I had a look at “Lustiver”, a scene in which Ambre transfers the Gulliver saga in her erotic way with many naked female liliputian SL avatars tieing Gulliver up. Looking at Gulliver’s hard-on, he seems to be enjoying.

I also had a look at “Tits stories”, a scene which deals the the fetish of breasts in many different aspects. I still have some more scenes to look at for a next visit.

The Rumi-slideshow is a complex artwork in itself, that I saw already at the old gallery. But now Ambre explained a bit more what it is about. Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, short Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian and Sufi mystic. Rumi’s poems have been widely translated into many languages. Ambre started in 2010 to make pictures illustrating quotes of Rumi. The collection is finished now and contains 100 illustrations that are shown in a slideshow. I admit, Rumi was way ahead of his time, he even had a quote fitting to Second Life and Amber illustrated that very well: “I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within”

Ambre Singh’s “The Rumi Slideshow”

Ambre Singh is in Second Life for over 13 years. She writes about herself:
It is your mind that creates this world”, said Buddha. All you do in SL will subtly change you and others in all worlds. So in my life and art, I thrive to add my spice, beauty and love.
My images tell stories. I set up scenes in SL, or I mix worlds… If the harvest is good, I make an exhibition. Sometimes, I photograph people of character in SL or in studio, trying to express the life and soul of the beings and places.
Colorful or discrete, tender or erotic, sometimes silly, often ironical, my images are never politically correct nor vulgar.

Last but not least, don’t forget to grab the gift box at the entrance of Ambre Singh’s gallery. It contains two of Ambre’s pictures.
Anything else? Yes – Ambre Singh runs her own website with a lot more information. And she also has a flickr account. Have a look.
