Art in Second Life 2022 (34) La Maison d’Aneli April 2022

Wednesday, April 6th, the latest exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli has been opened. It features the art of Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo, two very different installations of two artist companions.

I went a few days before the official openind and I started my visit with Kicca Igaly’s artwork. Kicca wrote about her installation “Pulsions”: “I went back to considering what prompts the human being to make, or sometimes not to make, his decisions. I see it as a precarious balance between negative pulsions and positive pulsions that alternate in taking over in the decision-making act. Wandering around the city, I discover at every corner this duality in the people that I meet.

The installation is a stylised city with highrise bulidings. Your walk on the ground level and meet other people that stand around alone or in groups. Each person has kind of two Angels hoovering above their heads, a white (positive) angel and a grey (negative) angel. What might they decide next? What are they talking about? What is the single street painter thinking about?
It is a calm and peaceful scenery that offers great opportunities for taking pictures, yet there is a certain tension almost tangible.. will the scene change?

Kicca Igaly is in Second life for more than 14 years. She had a passion for painting and art before in RL and Second Life offered her more ways to express herself, sculptures, digital art and buildings. Kicca is a friend of Nessuno Myoo, with who she also worked together on a LEA project in 2013. I saw Kicca Igaly’s art the first time at La Maison d’Aneli in 2021, where she showed her exhibition “Duality”. It seems to me that Kiica loses to play with and to reflect contrasts in human life.
More information can be found in the notecard accompanying the exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli. More of Kicca’s work can be seen on Kicca Igaly’s flickr page.

Nessuno Myoo’s installation is named “As A Mammoths In The Middle Of Butterflys”. The title describes exactly what you see on the first glance, the skeleton of a mammoth with butterfly flying around the whole skeleton. On a sceond glance you see that there are actually 2 mammoths, a full grown mammoth and a baby mammoth. The skeletons are displayed on a metal surface with cracks. In the center right under the skeletons something in the cracks is glowing red, and the red light reflects on the parts of the skeletons.
Nessuno wrote about the installation: “At the sunset of existence immersed in the wonder of the its own nature…

Around the skeletons are cubes, which are connected with straight wires. The cubes and wires reminded me of skeletons which I saw in museums as there has to be a construction to hold the pieces of the skeleton in place. In Nessuno’s installation they don’t have this function.
The skeletons and the butterflies are made of iron pieces and not of bones. It came to my mind that the red sustance in the cracks on the floor could be hot melted iron. In second life you can fly and I inspected the huge installation flying around, landing on the skeleton and on the cubes. That is fun – and provides a lot of additional perspectives.

Nessuno Myoo is in Second Life for 14 years and has a blog (in Italian) and a flickr page.

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 for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. As always I enjoyed my visit and writing about it.
