I visited the gallery this week and I was swept away by WYE, Mikhael Zubotzky's film on three screens. The reflective surfaces, the sand and the beach chairs greatly contributed to the experience of viewing the work, which exacts a beehive of ideas and thoughts ...

We aren't specifically art lovers. Curiosity got the better of us and we visited the gallery. We are happy that we did. The art really was beautiful and the building itself was an artwork, interesting and different. Worth a visit, whether you are an art lover or n9t.
