Simploring 2019 (81) La noveau Maison d’Aneli – joined exhibition of six artists

La Maison d’Aneli recently moved and is now located at VeGeTaL PLaNeT, which is created and owned by Vroum Short. On Wedbesday, July 17th, Aneli Abeyante opened the first exhibition in the new rooms and I visited on Thursday, July 18th. My visit reminded me that VeGeTaL PLaNeT is still on my list of places to explore.

The exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli presents the art of 4 artists, Sweet Susanowa, Patrick Moya, Winterwolf Talullah and Ule (uleria.caramel). In addition two more exhibtion spaces are used to present examples of Vroum Short’s art and of the art created by Aneli herself. The concept of the exhibitions and of the gallery remained the same. The new gallery is a bit more open and looks a bit more modern.

Right close to the entrance is the space, that is dedicated to Sweet Susanowa. Sweet joined Second Life 11 years ago without thinking about any exhibition at a gallery. She is a photographer now in real life as well as in Second Life. At La Maison d’Aneli different examples of her work are displayed ranging from processed and artificially manipulated black and white portrait pictures, erotic art to coloured abstract art. There’s one blurry portrait of a photographer – that might be the artist herself.

Uleria Caramel is an artist from Finland who joined RL 9 years ago. She has had several exhibitions in Second Life already. For the exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli she used old abstract pictures that she created aged between 12 and 14 years old. She enhanced the colours and added some digital effects to them. She wrotes about the exhibited pictures: “I really don’t know what else to say about them… you as a person who sees them, can judge them. Thank you!” And that’s the nature of art, everybody sees it with a personal view form a personal perspective.

Talullah Winterwolf is almost 10 years in Second Life. She was trained in Fashion Design in RL. The pieces exhibited at La Maison d’Aneli are layered images. Each piece tells a story, some are deeply autobiographical, others could be inspired by a chance snippet of conversation, a memory, a line in a song or book … each one contains an emotion Talullah was feeling strongly at the time.

I saw already some of Patrick Moya’s art. I came across him in 2017 when I visited his Moya Land (read Simploring 2017 (56) Moya).
Patrick Moya (born 1955 in Troyes, France), is a French artist. He is a part of the artistic movement “Ecole de Nice”. Moya has been at the forefront since the 1970s of straddling the latest forms of media and technology to benefit art rather than rendering it extinct.
(excerpt from wikipedia).
He is an early pioneer of video art and is active with his art in Second Life since 2007 in addition to his work in the physical world. The barriers between the two worlds do blur in his artistic work. Moya Patrick (moya janus) has also a website http://moyapatrick.com/ with tons of information about his work and about Moya in Second Life. Unfortunately it is in French only.
At La Maison d’Aneli we see different pieces of his work, all of them clearly showing Patrick Moya’s style. Most of them are dealing with different ways of creating kind of a Moya brand displaying the name Moya.

Vroum Short is a French SL artist since 2007. As mentioned above she created VeGeTaL PLaNet, the new location of La Maison d’Aneli. VeGeTaL PLaNet is “a world where everything becomes possible and achievable where the barriers of reality fade away to let the imagination flood it with life. In her underwater exhibitions, living plant sculptures and luminous paintings, animated in 3D, mingle“. Vroum Short’s art, currently exhibited at La Maison d’Aneli shows moving abstract objects in 2D and 3D with particular light effect.
Aneli Abeyante’s art is exhibited in the room next to Vroum Short’s art. Aneli also creates objects in 2D and 3D, colourful, steadily moving, and with particular light effects. Aneli writes about herself: “I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.”

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 Aneli for another great exhibition and thank you to all artists. The current Exhibition runs until end of August. Enjoy your visit, if you go there yourself.

Simploring 2019 (64) Binary Radiation at the Gallery La Serre

Sunday, June 9th, I visited the exhibition “Binary Radiation” at the gallery La Serre. The gallery La Serre is located at VeGeTaL PLaNeT. I came across across VeGeTaL PLaNeT during my visit to the latest exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read Simploring 2019 (56) La Maison d’Aneli in May). VeGeTaL PLaNeT is created by Vroum Short, who was one of the artists presented in May at La Maison d’Aneli.

The exhibition “Binary Radiation” opened on Monday, June 10th and I visited before it opened. Aneli Abeyante, owner of La Maison d’Aneli, had sent an invitation for the opening to me. Aneli is also curating the gallery La Serre.

“Binary Radiation” by Nino Vichan at Gallery La Serre (1)

Binary Radiation is an installation by Nino Vichan. The walls of the gallery are covered with integrated circuits. In the center of the room are two projectors sending light beams to the opposite wall. The light beams consist partly of the digits 0 and 1. The silhouettes of humans seem to operate the projectors and they also seem to control a spherical device in each beam that constantly changes it form obviously following fractal rules.

The whole installation is full of light effects and the pictures I took can’t really express what you see when visiting in 3D. You will be caught in a world of 0’s and 1’s, literally diving into a binary world, caught by artificial intelligence? In which way you interpret Nino’s work is up to you. I was impressed by the effects and the countless different forms and circuits I could discover only for seconds before they were replaced again. It is also intriguing to take a closer look at the two silhouettes.

Aneli, who was present during my pre-opening visit, told me that Nino is Italian. He’s not only doing installation with light effect but also creates drawings and other forms of art. She gave me two links, one about “Desert Abstract“, a series of abstract images from 2014 that Nino made inspired by a visit to Nevada. The other link shows some of Nino’s drawings that were exhibited in Second Life in 2012.

Aneli also told me that she is going to move her “La Maison d’Aneli” to VeGeTaL PLaNeT. The first exhibition there will be opened mid of July.

Thank you Nino for this great and inspiring installation. I enjoyed my visit a lot.
Thank you Vroum for providing the gallery La Serre and thank you Aneli for curating the gallery.
