There is a tremendously beautiful exhibit, All_Most Real, by the talented MM (Mysterr), currently at Nitroglobus Hall. Eighteen large black and white photographs, depicting both real and virtual life nude subjects, adorn the walls of the vast gallery space (which, by the way, is so very suitable for this kind of photography). It is not readily apparent which pictures display real life or virtual life and perhaps this is in fact intended since our virtual and real life experiences so often overlap. The artist notes that [t]he exhibition ALL_MOST REAL is a quest on reality and perception, and how they influence our emotions. We know perceptions win over facts and reality so many times, conditioning our lives. In MM’s search for realism, could it be that the doll finally (like pinocchio) transforms pixels into flesh? Or will she be a doll forever, keeping alive the hope and flame of the search? These works are meant to challenge you to look deeper, not only with your eyes, but also with your heart. Just let yourself go: will you be able to tell what’s real and what’s not? Maybe nothing is real, or all is, or just a part… It does not really matter that you solve the puzzle. Believe in what you want to believe… Change your beliefs along the path. “Life is a journey, not a destination”… The only way possible should be a free one. Congratulations both to MM for these exquisite photographs and to Dido Haas for curating. The show will be up until the end of August.
