My Protective Sanctuary
Where: interstellART_exhibitions
When: in 1 days [17 Oct 2021 13:00 SLT]

Eleven times, visitors to the new interstellART exhibition can immerse themselves in personal sanctuaries as individually designed by the participating artists*. From the central landing point, the individual protection zones can be reached by teleport access or by a portable hud. The artistic ideas and conceptions range from fantasy gardens to temple-like presentations of photos or mixed media images to conceptual representations of inner states, memories, life circumstances and ethereal meditation bubbles. Many of the participating artists provide visitors with a mini version of their installation as a gift on a sky platform. The exhibition on Var-Sim by artist and curator Asmita Duranjaya will be on view for the next five months and will open on October 17th 2021 at 10pm CET/1pm SLT with a Fracticularium, a fracticle performance featuring temporary hud-controlled shelter zones created from particles, accompanied by music. A warm invitation goes out to all hypergrid travellers interested in art. The best way to access is via Asmita Duranjaya's profile in the OS Grid to the sim region interstellART_exhibitions.
