Early this month a collaborative art installation opened at MIC Imagin@rium. It features works from 25 SL artists and also involves a real-life cross-over with the Il Margutta Gallery in Rome.
This installation is based on the work of Elina Chauvet, a RL Mexican artist who started the Zapatos Rojos project in Ciudad Juarez in Mexico back in 2009. The number of women being murdered and disappearing led her to this project. When asked why red shoes in an interview, she answered that while she was researching stories she found a common thread – shoes. “Several of the missing young women worked in shoe stores, were on their way to find work in a shoe shop, or were going shopping for shoes. This similarity caught my attention.”, she states.
The installation in Second Life is organised in a way that you can focus on each work of each artist without distractions so you can absorb the whole message. If you have some time to spare do go and take a look at this amazing art exhibition. It will be on until January 7th, so you still have a couple of weeks to go and visit.
The artists participating in this project are: Alpha Auer, Blue Tsuki, Cica Ghost, Daniele Daco Monday, Giorgio Mayo, Giovanna Cerise, Kicca Igaly, La Baroque, Lookatmy Back, Maddomxc Umino, Merlino Mayo, Mila Tatham, Mitaki Slade, Myyns Mayo, Nessuno Myoo, Nexuno Thespian, Nino Vichan, Paola Mills, Rubin Mayo, Sniper Siemens, Solkide Auer, Swina Allen, Violetta Inglewood, Viviana Houston and Mexi Lane owner of MIC Imagin@rium.
