We will be angels

At Tournicoton Art Galleries a very special exibition was opened last month (21st March 2008). Angels1_2 Who are the angels? Do they really exist. Could everyone be an angel? And what does it take to be an angel. The impression at the start, on the groundfloor is one of a ordinary photo-exposition… But things are not always what they seem to be. The poetry on the walls make the imagination run.

One day you will meet what you have sown, it will be your created flower and her petals will be the light….
Let sleep and you will meet the gold of the world under your feet….

Angels2_2 This poetry, in French, suggest that there is more between heaven and earth and invites the visitor to explore and find out. And if he will, he might even become an angel. The teleports to the second and third floors bring the visitors more ideas of how he could recognise an angel, and he will feel like getting lifted.

At this point he can either choose to follow the fluid-like stairs up in the sky, or for less-skilled flyers there is also a teleport, that brings the visitor in higher levels. Ascending the stairs, following poems, music and voices… the feeling of becoming an angel will be evident.

Angels4 Mariaka Nishi, who is the great spirit of this exibition, is always looking for ways to express what is between Second Life and Real Life, what is matrialistic and what is immatrialistic. The friction of real and unreal, possible and impossible, makes new levels visible and shows dimensions that have not been seen by ordinary human beings. One will get aware of the new dimensions while walking in this Exibition of Angels. It is not just a walk, it is an adventure throught a new level of consciousness that will give a lot to think about.

Angels5 While Mariaka gives all she can give to an exibition like this, she also gives room to other artists whose work she appreciates very much. Therefor, also the following artists made their contribution: Sacremeustache Beerbaum, Artistide Despres, Anathaniel Gausman, Domi Ahn, Coulaut Menges, Frao Ra, XaNaDu Watkin, Typote Beck and Philippe Kodekko.

I will help you to go up the ladder of light which lives in your heart and blossoms in your body.
Yes, that ladder exist in yourself, you create it, it is a cantic thing, traverse all your self…
And all degrees of creation, it’s a benediction…

Angels6Here starts the travel through the territories ascendent…
I only have a flower to offer you, it was born in my heart and it’s kingdom is in the earth and in the sky…
If you look in the water of the well, you might see it’s beautiful smiling at you in a dizzying hug.
Because her perfume was kept secret from the beginning of times.

Come and vist these new countries.
Come closer to the divine….

Let the forces go through you and irrigate the earth….
Let the chains behind…..
Come higher on the way which opens up to meet who you really are….
and allways were.

We are far away yet close at the same time….
we work together in different dimensions…
my identity is similar to a room opening on a big garden…
and here on the bottom….

Angels3 The “L’échelle de l’Ange” will stay at Tournicoton Art Gallery, Kual Hele, till June 2008. So, don’t miss this experience.

My special thanks are for Philippe Chaplin who made the first two fantastic photographs for this article and even more because he was so generous as to go all the way up with me to translate a great part of the poems. Thank you, Philippe!
