Super happy with this cool video made by Dark Black Hawk, who's SL name is N I C O Revolution (altemir.revolution) of Monique (Moni) Beebe's exhibition 'Sensation & Perception' at Nitroglobus.

Have a look at the video and do visit the gallery to admire Moni's images. Don't wait too long because soon I will be changing exhibitions.

Gallery news: December opening party & a review by Inara

image by Inara Pey from her blogpost 

Inara wrote a review in her blog 'Living in a Modem World' about Monique Beebe's exhibition 'Sensation & Perception' @ Nitroglobus. It's as always thorough and analytic. Very grateful to Inara for this blogpost.

'Monique – Moni to her friends – is one of my favourite artists when it comes to narrative avatar studies; her work is richly evocative, sometimes provocative, and always fascinating to read and admire. Such is the richness of her work, Moni has been a semi-regular at Nitroglobus over the last few years, and it is always a pleasure to see her work there. However, for this exhibition, she presents something a little bit different; a series of images that challenge her and those of us who view them, as she explains:...............'


Last Sunday there was an opening party with music of Betty Tureaud (DJ Boo) and DJ Ghost. Venus Adored was in charge of the particles. It was a lovely evening and of course I made a lot of images of all visitors. 

For those who weren't able to tp in, the exhibition 'Sensation & Perception' will be on the walls of Nitroglobus during the entire month of December. Here's your taxi to the gallery.

'Sensation & Perception' by Monique Beebe, the December exhibition @ Nitroglobus


poster made by David Silence, based on an image of Monique

Monique is returning to Nitroglobus and I am super happy to have her works on the walls of my gallery again! This time she leaves it up to the viewer (YOU) to make your own interpretation and assumptions of what you see/feel watching her images. There's a lot of portraits, some masked, some bluntly looking into the camera. 

3D artworks shown in the gallery are by  Nitro Fireguard, Igor Ballyhoo, Livio Korobase, Harry Cover,  Kerupa Flow and Cherry Manga

The opening party will be Sunday 6 December at 12 pm SLT ( = 21 hrs Amsterdam time)
Music by Boo (12-1.30 pm SLT) & Ghost (1.30-3.00 pm SLT)
Particles by Venus Adore
taxi to Nitroglobus

I hope to see you all in the gallery!

Explanation of the exhibition by the artist:

The aesthetic experience is more a matter of emotion and feeling (sensation) than of the subjective image which we create in our heads of what we see (perception). In other words you can be 'touched' by an image, a feeling you have, before you interpret the story which is shown on the image.

Everybody has a different sense or perception: for instance when we see an image of a face with wrinkles we can get touched by the emotion of that face and we automatically assume it is an old person we see. But maybe we also see something different in it, like a person who went trough a lot, who suffered and/or lived in pitiful circumstances.

In the same way this exhibition Sensation & Perception' is made. 

It's not like the usual artwork I make, where i try to capture emotions in a face. This time i got out of my comfort zone and I will let the spectator make their own sensation and perception.

hEIN! in the Mix with particles by Venus Adored @ Nitroglobus


poster of the event

On 23 November I organized a music event in the gallery with dj hEIN! tuning and Venus Adored shooting particles. It was super cool, loved the music and the visuals.

NICO made a cool short video of this event at Nitroglobus Gallery with accompanying music supplied by hEIN. 
Many many images were made. I will show you some and of course share the video here:

Some images by me and some made by Traci:
