The promo notecard states: "You are cordially invited to attend the opening of Boudoir Immersive, a Real Life/ Second Life dual world art project created by Vitabela Dubrovna and Precious Restless. The opening will be on Saturday, April 6 from 3-4am SLT. The exhibit will run for a week from April 6-13.
Four years in the making, this will be the first virtual art project that Boudoir fashion studio has created. Through this multimedia exhibition, which also marks the first solo exhibition by Boudoir studio, we will be able to experience their distinctive style in two separate dimensions of creativity.
Garments constructed using 3D programs and Second Life virtual world platform, Boudoir will also re-create these same garments in real life exhibits and present them at the Ulupuh gallery (Croatian artists association).
Real life gallery visitors will have the opportunity to experience the virtual exhibition side by side with Second Life visitors from around the world through monitors set up at the exhibit. In addition, visitors to the Ulupuh gallery will also see the stunning life size collection of dresses created to match their virtual counterparts.
The whole project will also be documented in highly stylized photographs by Mladen Saric (RL pictures) and Petra Messioptra (SL pictures). Curated by Ana Lendvaj.
Please join us for the opening of this amazing exhibit if you can, but most certainly make plans to visit the SL gallery during the next week to enjoy this chance to experience the art of Vitabela and Precious is a way you never have before. Also be sure to pick up the special gift Vitabela has made to commemorate this occassion."
I went in for a sneak peak and ran into Boudoir owner, Precious Restless, who assured me it was ok to blog this now before the official opening party, and explained this exhibit has been a good way to present Second Life. She said, "People in RL were thrilled XD. It's very hard to explain what SL is to ppl so this was the best way to introduce our work here :) Here in Croatia SL is not so popular and known so there is no bad reputation, but now we helped ppl to have an idea about it :)"
