Art Gallery of NSW


My friend and I decided to go to the Art Gallery of NSW to see the new Contemporary
 Art floor a few weeks back. The above was my favourite piece by artist Ugo Rondinone.
You really have to go there and experience it. There were speakers in the glass with a
looped conversation representing miscommunication. The vibe of the work was quite unsettling,
it felt voyeuristic in a way. I felt quite isolated in the space even though there were people
walking in and out of the room to see the piece. Which I guess is what you are suppose to feel,
as the artist deals with themes of isolation and disenchantment.

I'm really drawn to art that deals with themes of lonliness, hurt and death. I like the darkness of those
types of subject matter.
