On our second day in Hobart, we visited MONA. Basically, some filthy rich guy bought a peninsula north of town and built this museum. He has some amazing Egyptian relics that are mixed in with all sorts of ‘new’ art. I’ve put in quite a few pics, but spared all the ones that weren’t ‘G’ rated, like the line-up of hundreds of plaster castings of different women’s privates. And many pictures of penises.
Throughout the trip we heard people talking about it. The basic take on it: it is something different, you should go. I don’t know that we would recommend going, but it is something.
I don’t get art. Maybe I am too left-brained. Give me a nice landscape any day!
There is a winery and they brew beer and have a restaurant, also. We were too late for tasting, but it is a beautiful set-up.
This was my favorite indoor installation. The software that must run the water droplets… really amazing.
