Travel Diaries; Saatchi Gallery

image

This particular gallery is famous for housing contemporary and controversial art!
Recently, they changed all their exhibitions and I just had to go see them.
In the first studio downstairs, there was a plateau of blue plastic bags.

Just plastic bags, God knows how many bags were used for this?!

In the next studio, the artist created the illusion of a floating tree.

Suspended by a tiny string when you get closer.

Then there were the truly controversial pieces.

Wow!!!
I wonder what the artist’s inspiration was?

The highlight for me was the Wanderland exhibition by Hermes Paris which covered the entire first floor.

It felt magical when I walked into the first space…
There was a disco bulb hanging aboveย  giving off white dots of light in the dimly light room and there was a black and white video playing on the far left wall with a soft background music.

Fantastic!

In the next room, it was all about walking-sticks.

And the room after this had Hermes pieces; scarves, bags, hats, jackets,shoes e.t.c.

And there was my favourite room for this exhibition, it was a circular space that had a suspended spinning cylindrical object that housed all sorts of Hermes bags.

Some outstanding work from this exhibition.

By the time I walked out of the gallery, I was filled with fresh burning inspiration.

Am a lover of art like that!

So if you have a free day and need to see some interesting work of art, check out Saatchi Gallery; its about 5minutes walk from Sloane square station.

Until my next post,
Stay Awesome and have a productive week!!!
