If you love me, with love

\“Si vous m’aimez d’amour”or “If you love me with love.” is the latest installation of Mariaka Nishi and her friends Sacremeustache Beerbaum, Naastik RAU, Philippe Kodekko, Manser Acronym, Sayax Milev, Michoko Ugajin, Typote Beck Biosynapse Tae and Elfe Imako at the fabulous Tournicoton art gallery on the island Kuai Hele in Second Life.

The installation of photo’s in black and white seem to reflect the memory of a summersday at the beach, several years ago. This mood which is very suitable in this time of the year, is also supported very well with the video clip in a slight sepia. A fine experience in a restless world and with a fine eye for the magic in life.

Teleport to the exhibition right now!
