Perhaps because of its close proximity to the university, the Annex quickly became the home of many of the city’s most important arts and cultural institutions and, indeed, the biggest of them, The Royal Ontario Museum, was initially a department at UofT. Others quickly followed, including the Gardiner Museum, the Bata Shoe Museum (steps from Cielo), the University Art Museum, Galerie De Bellefeuille, and The Royal Conservatory of Music along with its stunning new performance space, Koerner Hall.

Cielo translates as “sky and heaven” in English from both Italian and Spanish, and nothing visually captures the essence of the “sky” in the popular imagination as much as angel-adorned clouds, a material object also totally ephemeral in nature: literally here one moment, gone the next. That sense of transience, of an “impermanent state of being,” has obsessed the world-renowned Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde ever since he first created, then photographed, his first cloud installation, Nimbus, inside a small sixteenth-century chapel in Hoorn, Holland, back in 2012. Smilde has since reprised such hyper-realistic miniature cloud installations in factories, museums, castles and dungeons around the world, to much critical acclaim. The original photo of Nimbus now resides at London’s famous Saatchi Gallery. The global celebrity of Smilde’s clouds grew even greater when international fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar published photographs of four of the world’s most famous designers - Karl Lagerfeld, Alber Elbaz, Donatella Versace, Dolce & Gabbana - up-close-and-personal with Smilde’s eerily beautiful clouds in a piece, appropriately titled, ICONOCLOUDS.

The Artist

Smilde was initially inspired by the ubiquitous presence of cumulus clouds (also known as thunder clouds) in classical Dutch paintings, a reflection of the rainy landscape. But he upended his artistic ancestors by “capturing” these natural phenomenon within interior spaces. Smilde creates the cloud by saturating the air within the space with a fine mist of water and then introducing a puff of smoke. The water condenses onto the smoke particles just like the droplets of a natural cloud form around tiny ‘condensation nuclei’ in the atmosphere. The clouds lasts a few seconds, just long enough to be photographed, thereby making the momentary everlasting, almost celestial.

When asked about his “intention” in creating these stunning images, Smilde is quizzically paradoxical. “On the one hand I wanted to create an ominous situation; you could see the cloud as a sign of misfortune. You could also read it as an element out of the Dutch landscape paintings in a physical form in a classical museum hall.” Whatever his intention, his “heavenly” nimbus images have transfixed gallery goers around the world.
