Art in Second Life (61) Anima – A Retrospective on Photography by Akim Alonzo

I was invited to attend the opening of the exhibtion “Anima – A Retrospective on Photography” by Akim Alsonzo at Kondor Art Center on June 25th. I visited the day after….

The exhibition is shown at the main building of the Kondor Art Center. As the name implies, it features a broad variety of Akim’s artwork. The gallery building has 2 floors and offers quite a lot of space for displaying. In the center at the staircase is a picture frame where the pictures showcased in this exhibition are displayed as a slideshow with smooth fading transisitons.

I came across Akim Alonzo in 2019 the first time, when his art was featured at La Maison d’Aneli (read here). And I had seen some of the pictures shown at “Anima – A Retrospective on Photography” already there. These pictures are loosely based on the cult movie “The Matrix”. A metaphor for a world of people trapped in a simulated, virtual reality that has many aspects in common with the Secondlife world. And most of them have surrealistic elements.

Akim Alonzo’s other passion are portraits. Most of them are in black and white or monochrome. Akim succeeds to capture the expression of a face, the soul, at least something that makes the spectator build a story to the portrait. He selects the background very thought fully, so that it doesn’t distract from the portrait but combines and eneases building a story.

Akim Alonzo is a traveller and photographer and has a passion for art. He’s the owner, artistic director, and curator of his “Itakos Project and Art Gallery“. And he has an own website.
