Space 4 Art

Opening today, Sunday, July 21, at 1:30 slt (or possibly at 1:00 slt, as I see two different times posted) are a couple of installations at the sim Space 4 Art, curated by Giridevi and Asmita Duranjaya. The first, shown above, is Shipwrecking - Direction Home by Asmita Duranjaya, a reflection on her quest for a new home and her experience of finding a location in Sri Lanka.

The second installation, by ChapTer Kronfeld, is a contemporary interpretation of the Seven Deadly Sins from Dante's Divine Comedy (second image) in which one encounters a series of vignettes depicting pride, envy, sloth, greed, gluttony and lust. Experiencing the entire installation might take some time, as at the end one is invited to climb the Stairway to Heaven ascending hundreds of meters into the sky.

If neither of those installations grabs your fancy, then head to the MiniContest Black'n'White, a contest in which artists were allowed to use up to five monochromatic prims to create small artworks. The entrants include Celestine Ghiardie, Walt Ireton, Haveit Neox, Louly Loon, Kayly Iali, Mathilde Vhargon, Xirana Oximoxi, Sisi Biedermann, Andy Burroughs, Sina Souza, Gitu Aura, Moewe Winkler, kjs Yip and CaraMia Quan. The entire sim includes a remarkable number of galleries and other installations, so be sure to broaden your experience by exploring its many other offerings.
