Art in Second Life 2020 (75) Kalliope Bennet – There was a reason to stay

I visited Dixmix Gallery again and saw the exhibtion by Kalliope Bennet “There was a reason to stay” in room Abby.

The exhibition room looks a bit pale and cool with all walls, floor and ceiling held in a grey, lightly blue tone and the pictures are not colourful either yet also held in pale tones some more tending to blue, others to brown or grey tones. “There was a reason to stay” consists of 10 pictures. In most of them we see a the back of a woman looking out into the nature. The pictures are not only held in one coloursheme they are also a bit blurry like fading memories. So there was a reason to stay at these spots for these women (or is it one and the same), be it a favourite landscape, be the memory of a particular moment .. whatever it is, people sometimes stay as their thoughts wander to another time or place.
The selection and the setting of the pictures is well done, it simply fits.

Kalliope Bennet “There was a reason to stay” – exhibition at DixMix Gallery

It’s the first time I came across Kalliope Bennet (tsocolat) and I couldn’t find out much about her. She’s in Second Life for over 8 years. And reading her profile I could sense how the pictures fit to her, how they express herself. You can see more of her work on her flickr page.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it, and last but not least thank you Kalliope Bennet for your great pictures. I enjoyed my visit.
“Kalliope Bennet – There was a reason to stay” will stay open for visitors until December 4th.
