Look at me getting all cultural and spending my weekends mooching around galleries and museums! I’m really putting that New Year Resolution to work ;) After having a great day out at the National History Museum I wanted to see what else was free, on my doorstep and open on a Sunday. Cue the Saatchi Gallery. Over in Sloan Square just off the Kings Road in upmarket Chelsea, this gorgeous building is home to a number of contemporary art installations across four floors.
Open seven days a week until 6pm, there are no lines or queues, just walk straight in and enjoy. Simply turn up, head in and gaze at the rooms upon rooms of artwork. I visited on a Sunday, sunshine blazing in the afternoon horizon, the setting was simply beautiful. Not just that, so was the art inside ;) As with all contemporary pieces their subject matter are a tad weird and wonderful. Yes there is a cow’s behind that you er look in and plenty of 3d sculptures and pieces that will cause you to question the norm.
One of the most popular pieces was the McDonalds truck. Nutsy’s McDonalds by Tom Sachs is a mix media installation where you can almost smell the burgers cooking away. With workers uniforms, drink dispensers and a thank you bin, it really has it all. Whether you want to pop by before lunch, spend the day or shelter away from the cold – this is a fab place to visit to see some great pieces of art. It’s just a happy coincidence that you are a mere stones through away from the bustling shops on the highstreet ;)
