Saatchi Gallery - Gesamtkunstwerk

Monday night private view at the Saatchi Gallery. Gesamtkunstwerk is an interesting collection of German contemporary art. Schwarze Ballons is a nine-part installation by Thomas Zipp, which includes these two large black balloon-shaped sculptures.

Richard Wilson - 20:50
The only permanent piece in the gallery is this contemporary masterpiece by Richard Wilson. The room is completely flooded with thick, black, indelible, recycled engine oil perhaps three feet deep. It looks like a polished floor yet also appears as a bottomless pool mirroring the galleries architecture. The illusion it creates is a stroke of genius!
