South African, high – end artist, Sharmaine Thérèsa Pretorius (SHARM.T. P) joins the digital exhibition at the M.A.D.S. Gallery in Milan and Canary Islands, to express a fraction of her views about Aldilà. Read more about the artist at the link below.

Gallery curators juxtapose…..”What no one has ever dared to think of the afterlife is that it could be absolutely identical to where we are now.” (Adam Phillips).

Aldilà. The other side of things, situations, places.

Aldilà. An unknown place, a place that can only be accessed with the mind.

Aldilà (beyond) is on the other side, on the other side of the wall, of an obstacle that must be overcome or as Schonehauer intended it is a world hidden by the deceptive veil of Maya.

THE ARTIST hints that there may be more than one veil to be made aware of and that time may be the biggest veil to pierce in order to reach better understanding, but it takes dedication and hard work on the side of seekers. See the work of the artist named:

“What no one has ever dared to think of the afterlife is that it could be absolutely identical to where we are now.”

(Adam Phillips)

Aldilà. The other side of things, situations, places.

Aldilà. An unknown place, a place that can only be accessed with the mind.

Aldilà (beyond) is on the other side, on the other side of the wall, of an obstacle that must be overcome or as Schonehauer intended it is a world hidden by the deceptive veil of Maya.

According to the philosopher, the human perception of reality is distorted, due to the veil presence, which does not allow man to see the true reality. In a passage of his essay entitled “The world as will and representation” he states that “It is Maya, the deceptive veil,  which  envelops the eyes of mortal and makes them see a world of which it can neither be said that it exists, nor that id does not exists; because she resembles the dream, resembles the reflection of the sun on the sand, which the pilgrim from afar mistakes for water, or it also resembles the rope thrown to the ground, which he takes for a snake”.

This term should also be understood as rebirth, as change. It is the overcoming of an obstacle that leads to the abandonment of a previous situation and the beginning of a new adventure. The term “beyond” therefore presupposes the existence of two worlds, two elements, two places, two concepts and two opposing symbols. This leads us to ask ourselves: “What if the borders weren’t so clear? What if good and evil could be on one side of the barricare and on the other side there was a stranger beyond?”. This concept leads us to consider the essay “Beyond good and evil” by the Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. In  the second part  of the  essay the  philosopher speaks of “Free Spirit”for Nietzsche free spirits are those who investigate reality  in  such  a  profound way as to be almost cruel because they seek the truth even in something painful, so curious and implacably prosthetic with the heart towards the elusive.

In this sense it is interesting to consider the Socratic myth of the cave in which people are chained and do not have the possibility to turn their gaze to the lightcondemned in this way to consider reality what the shadows project on the wall. But if one of them were able to free himself and look at the light, not only would he feel pain because his eyes are not accustomed to the light, but he would feel dismay and terror at seeing for the first time the cause of the images projected onto the wall and probably feel the visceral urge to return to darkness. At the same time, a man who has become aware that he has believed in a reality that he was not, and finally aware that he has freed himself from the chains of ignorancewill never be able to turn back, and although he is faced with an impervious and infinite road, will give up the temptation to return to darkness.

The Socratic myth touches on a fundamental point: is the world in which we live real or is it just a wall that does not allow us to see the real reality? What if there’s a fantasy world we can’t access? And if there iswhat does this world look like? Would it be possible to identify the afterlife with the concept of virtual? In the common sense the real is opposed to the virtual and if instead what is virtual is part of reality? As if the latter could not exist without the firstVirtual is all that is possiblereality is a manifestation of the possible, and with it also the afterlifeHusserl, founder philosopher of phenomenology, designates the study of phenomena in the philosophical sphere as they manifest themselves, in their appearance, to the intentional knowledge of the individual, regardless of external physical reality. According to phenomenology no reality ever presents itself before us devoid of the abstract characterization provided by its virtuality.

Many artists had asked themselves the same questions distorting reality and creating utopian worlds. First of all Surrealists who have make of their dreams their artworksSalvador Dalì in “Dream caused by the flight of a bee around a pomegranate” that represents an irrational and unlikely world. Magritte with his paintings allows us to go over the visible seeing-through his subconscious as in “The false mirror” by means of the eye here represented or even in the most famous “La Trahison des images (ceci n’est pas une pipe)” in which the pipe is a representation of an image that goes over his appearance inviting us to a deep reflection. An additional movement that evolves in line of the same thought is the one followed by the Dadaism who used quotidian and objects to create their artworks cancelling their real essence.

It is possible to affirm that art itself is beyond place. Its aim and the one of the artist too is to represent the world and its creation not as we can see it but in a personal interpretation. So we can say that art represents the artist’s reality; his truth; the world beyond the thin layer and that each of us want to reach.

M.A.D.S. asks the artists who will participate in the event, to do the same, representing their imaginary world whatever they see it: a happy place or a perdition one; a place where they can meet their beloved or a place of renaissance. The duplicity of the word ‘beyond’ corresponds to a subjectivity meaning: every artist will explain the concept in a personal and fictional way thinking about parallel wordsM.A.D.S. asks its artists to drop the Maya veil and show the public what it hides.

Branches of M.A.D.Gallery:

Italy: Milan

Milan is a city in northern Italy, capital of Lombardy, and the second-most populous city proper in Italy after Rome. It is the only European city with GDP greater than its corresponding national capital’s. Milan served as the capital of the Western Roman Empire, the Duchy of Milan and the Kingdom of LombardyVenetia.

The Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia (Latin: Regnum Langobardiae et Venetiae), commonly called the “Lombardo-Venetian Kingdom” (Italian: Regno Lombardo-Veneto, German: Königreich Lombardo–Venetien), was a constituent land (crown land) of the Austrian Empire. It was created in 1815 by resolution of the Congress of Vienna in recognition of the Austrian House of Habsburg-Lorraine’s rights to Lombardy and the former Republic of Venice after the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, proclaimed in 1805, had collapsed. It was finally dissolved in 1866 when its remaining territory was incorporated into the recently proclaimed Kingdom of Italy.

Iron Crown.JPG

The Iron Crown (Italian: Corona Ferrea; Latin: Corona Ferrea) is a reliquary and may be one of the oldest royal insignia of Christendom. It was made in the Early Middle Ages, consisting of a circlet of gold and jewels fitted around a central silver band, which tradition held to be made of iron beaten out of a nail of the True Cross. In the medieval Kingdom of Italy, the crown came to be seen as a relic from the Kingdom of the Lombards and was used as regalia for the coronation of the Holy Roman Emperors as kings of Italy. It is kept in the Cathedral of Monzanear Milan.

Canary Islands: Fuerteventura

Macaronesia (Portuguese: Macaronésia) is a collection of four volcanic archipelagos in the North Atlantic Ocean, off the coasts of the continents of Africa and Europe. Each archipelago is made up of a number of Atlantic oceanic islands, which are formed by seamounts on the ocean floor and have peaks above the ocean’s surface. Some of the Macaronesian islands belong to Portugal, some belong to Spain, and the rest belong to Cape Verde.                                           

Coordinates: 24°15′24″N 22°28′16″W

The name Macaronesia is derived from the Greek words meaning “islands of the fortunate” (μακάρων νησοι or μακάρων νήσοι, makárōn nēsoi). The name was first used by ancient Greek geographers to refer to any islands west of the Strait of Gibraltar.

Fuerteventura island’s name is a compound word formed by the Spanish words for “strong” (fuerte) and “fortune” (ventura). Traditionally, Fuerteventura’s name has been regarded as a reference to the strong winds around the island and the resulting danger to nautical adventurers.

It is in the Atlantic Ocean and is part of the North Africa region, politically part of Spain. At 1,660 square kilometres (640 sq mi), it is the second largest of the Canary Islands, after Tenerife. As at the start of 2019, Fuerteventura had 116,886 inhabitants, the least populated of the Province of Las Palmas. It was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in May 2009. Its capital is Puerto del Rosario.

Angelino “Dalorto” is known for a portolan chart commonly dated 1325 (now revised to 1330), privately held by the Prince Corsini collection in Florence. Its signature was traditionally read as “Hoc opus fecit Angelinus de Dalorto ano dñi MCCXXV de mense martii composuit hoc” (and since re-read as “Angelinus de Dulceto’” and “ano dñi MCCXXX“, thus the revision of the name to “Dulceto” and the year to 1330).

In many ways, the 1325 Dalorto portolan marks a transition point in European portolans, between the Genoese and Majorcan cartographic schools.

Angelino “Dulcert” is known for a portolan chart dated 1339 and held by the Bibliotheque Nationale de France in Paris, France (B.696). Its signature reads: “ano MCCCXXXVIIII mense Augusto Angelino Dulcert in civitate Maioricarum composuit”. Unlike its predecessor, it is composed not on a single vellum, but on two parchment pages, joined together as a single map, measuring 75 × 102 cm.

Made in Palma, the Dulcert 1339 map is considered the founding piece of the Majorcan cartographic school. Although some of its features were already presaged in the Dalorto map, it goes further in the inland illustrations, in particular including miniature illustrations of people.

In many ways, the Dulcert 1339 map is very similar to the 1325 Dalorto map. On the other hand, the portolan’s keys and legends are written in Latin, and it contains features not usually found on Genoese or Venetian portolans.

The 1339 Dulcert map is notable for giving the first modern depiction of the island of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, as Insula de Lanzarotus Marocelus, a reference to the Genoese navigator Lancelotto Malocello, and affixes a Genoese shield to mark the island (a custom which will be retained by future mapmakers).

Dulcert also introduces what seems like the Madeira islands, named here as Capraria and Canaria (legendary names for two of the Fortunate Islands of classical antiquity, as found in, e.g. Ptolemy).

The oldest heraldic representation connected with Macedonia surviving to the present time, or discovered so far, is the banner of Skopje, on the Dulcert 1339 Map, with blazon: Or, double-headed eagle Gules. Above the name of the city of “Scopi” is written “Servia” (Serbia).

Originally known as Puerto de Cabras (Port of the Goats)Puerto del Rosario was initially of little political importance on the island, living in the shadow of the ancient capital Betancuria. It had long been a fishing settlement and benefited from a sheltered natural harbour. The “Atlantic Navigator”, written in 1854, describes the town then known as “Cabras” as “the main port”, but goes on to describe it as an “insignificant place”.

The “Atlantic Navigator” describes the makeshift landing area for shipping as “indifferent”, while calling the “beach of shingles” where ships anchor as “even worse”. It was this status as the “central port” of the island that saw it become the capital of the island in 1860, taking that honour from Antigua. The port was popular for shipping goats and this is where its original name came from. However, in 1957, it was decided that the name “Cabras” was not suitable. A more attractive name was selected and Puerto de Cabras was renamed Puerto del Rosario (“rosary port”)

PS: The artist loves Macarons across time, but just once or twice a year.

Parisian-style macarons (vanilla flavour)

The macaron is traditionally held to have been introduced in France by the Italian chef of queen Catherine de Medici during the Renaissance. Since the 19th century, a typical Parisian-style macaron is presented with a ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two such cookies, akin to a sandwich cookie. The confection is characterized by a smooth squared top, a ruffled circumference—referred to as the “crown” or “foot” (or “pied”)—and a flat base. It is mildly moist and easily melts in the mouth. Macarons can be found in a wide variety of flavours that range from traditional (raspberry, chocolate) to unusual (foie gras, matcha).

King Hezekiah, The sun was sent backward.

9. So Isaiah replied, “This will be your sign from the
LORD that the LORD will do what he has promised. Shall the shadow go forward ten steps or go
back ten steps?”

10. Hezekiah answered, “It’s an easy thing for a shadow to lengthen ten steps. So
let the shadow go backward ten steps.

11. So Isaiah cried out to the LORD, who brought the
shadow back ten steps after it had gone down the stairway of Ahaz. (2 Kings 20:1-11)
