Great place to put art. Never saw a olive press with FOUR crushing stones.

What an interesting installation. I have a friend who makes mounted cloth animal heads...humane trophies...they're wonderful.

Lois said...

That second shot is so good JM! I like the colors too.

Sharon said...

This looks like an interesting exhibition. I'm curious about the color of the walls. Are they always this deep red? It certainly makes a dramatic backdrop for the art.

Very nice images. Well lighted and perfectly framed.

Interesting...we tend to get the real thing over here! I like that wallpaper...but I'm not sure I could live with it.

It's strange, I'm not sure what I feel about it. Wallpaper (or at least I think it's wallpaper) is funny - interesting mixture of cosy animal pattern and those demonic pictures:)

I'd like to visit there in a very hot day,It might get me cool.

JM said...

No, Sharon, the red pannels are part of the exhibition. The building interiors are white as you can check clicking the link.

Weird, but fascinating!

I love both of these shots, but the one into the mirror is so interesting!
