is currently presenting “The Artist is Online” within Decentraland, a block-chain-based virtual reality platform. On view through April 21 are digital works from artists like Olive Allen, Thomas Webb, Andy Picci, Emma Stern, Manuel Rossner, Ben Elliot, and more.
König is the first to rent and build a commercial gallery showing art on the VR platform. Artist Manuel Rossner was invited to create a 3D model of the gallery’s Berlin home, a former church designed by Werner Düttman and Arno Brandlhuber. And since this is a digital world, Rossner was able to blast a hole in the side of the nave and create a winding pathway up to the exterior tower. Via “The Artist is Online,” Decentraland users are able to view digital works within their natural habitat.
