Art in Scond Life 2022 (15) Inside Maloe’s Mind by Maloe Vansant

I got a hint from Violet Boa to visit “Inside Maloe’s Mind” by Maloe Vansant, an exhibition that opened Sunday, February 6th. I have written about Maloe’s art already before. The last time I came across her was in September 2021 when I visited her exhibition “Eternally” at DixMix Gallery (read here) that celebrated the tenth anniversary of Maloe Vansant and DixMix Source’s friendship. And DixMix is mentioned on exhibition poster for “Inside Maloes Mind” as he provided the music for the opening event.

Inside Maloe’s mind” is showcased at “In my Mind project Gallery”, the gallery space of A. (Ava Darkheart). With the invitation I got a quote from Maloe: “The journey in my Second Life, brought by pictures of my past, pictures that are close to my heart…

The exhibition space is in a sphere in the skies. The pictures are arranged on the inside of the sphere so you also have to look up to see them. All of them are a combination of texts and poems and the pictures itself. The text is faded in and out – hence you get something to begin with when you make up your own story to each picture. I just wonder, which was first, the picture or the text/poem?

Maloe Vansant joined Second Life in 2007, a new world for her who had never played games or joined any social network site: “After creating little Maloe, my barbie doll, my pixel soul, I discovered the possibility of making snapshots and I started to make a graphic diary of Maloe’s journey in Second Life, showing the emotions she experienced in this pixel world. I think I succeeded in doing this by using some post processing in Photoshop. I am not a woman of many words, I try to express myself, my feelings, my passion and probably my dark side through my pictures.
Maloe has also a flickr account where you can see more of her artwork.

The virtuality blog published an interview with Maloe Vansant by Violet Boa back in August 2021. Violet Boa wrote in the introducing text about Maloe:
Maloe belongs to the group of people who are strongly guided by feelings and she is blessed with ability to touch our souls with her photography.
With skillful game between light, shadow, color and composition she creates works that appeal to us not only on the quality level, but also write stories of life and with it catch our thoughts and hearts.” This text also fits very well to the exhibited pictures at “Inside of Maloe’s Mind

The “In my Mind project Gallery” is owned and curated by A. (Ava Darkheart). I met A. during my visit and she told me that her own art is exhibited on another level of her space. Hence I have something to add to my list.

Thank you A. for providing the space for the art, thank you Violet for the hint and thank you Maloe for another great exhibition, I enjoyed my visit. “Inside Maloe’s Mind” should stay open for visitors throughout February.
