Old and new architecture in harmony
Design down to the smallest details
We decided to admire the exhibition located in the walkway. Contemporary art with a taste of the macabre. Here are a few of the art works on display. I will return to other and older works of art later.
In the large walkway you found an installation playing with death. As this blue sculpture with a glistening white skull, a colourful ghost whose light blue garment is playing in a gentle breeze.
Memento Mori, remember you will die!
A baby is expected - call the vet!?
Whose offspring is expected here - I wonder? Who to call - a midwife or a vet?
This over pregnant sculpture thrills your curiosity, as you try to figure out what is inside and whether it is its head or its feet that is/are clearly visible in the small opening.
It is difficult to see whether this hot embrace between the grim reaper and the bald headed naked man is love, a hot dance, or a fight for life.
It leaves you, in fascination, with questions and no answers. I think danse macabre is the correct word to use here.
He is coming to take you away, hi-hi, ha-ha, ho-ho.....
Scratch on - do not give up!!!
Remember the fight between Krystle and Alexis in Dynasty - the Carrington saga? This is worse!
I do not know what these two initially disagreed on, but whatever it may be, it is dead serious. Using their hands scratching each other until bleeding through every opening.
No winners, no losers here. The undertaker is waiting for his prey.
