“Rise”, my little installation at Moya Gallery in Second Life

Rise in Moya_004

The wind slips through the broken window licking painfully the wounds of Silvia, who put on her makeup in the mirror while she eats her cry.

Silvia is painting in red the blue in her lips,
in peach the black in her eye,
in flesh his fingers marked in purple in her arm …
while she lies to her reflection,
again,
saying this is the last time,
that he has apologized to her, truly this time,
that she deserves his deformed words and blows,
that without him she would be nothing and that
he, deep in his heart,
loves her.

And so it goes a day,
a week,
a year …
until one day is the cold and dirty water who slips through her mouth and licks her wounds while makeup and embraces her skin in a silent hug that turns off her life.

Rise.

Rise is my CG art installation at Moya Land, the virtual gallery in Second Life of french multimedia artist Patrick Moya (aka Moya Janus). It’s a lite version of the one I did for non-profits project One Billion Rising in its initiative in Second Life, to help in the call to protest against gender violence. Rise talks about a woman that hopes that her beloved and abuser can change, maybe someday because “he, deep in his heart, loves her”… and that hope is what kill her at last.

Also, Wizardoz Chrome make a video with some of the captures she took during the Vernissage opening of Moya Land where you can see Rise and many other interesting artworks from Pol Jarvinen, Layachi Ihnen, Nino Vichan, Lemelon rouge Onyett, Comet Morigi, Luciella Lutrova, Glyph Graves, Cayenne Avon, Van Caerndow, ieko Catnap and Fiona Saiman.
