Whimsical playground – NGV International

Greeted by the magical looking Waterwall, I could tell that this place was going to be fun. There’s 2 NGV, this was the international side.

The Waterwall at the entrance. I just can’t help touching that 😀

Right near the entrance was a mirror house looking creation. Walking into this mirror sculpture was like entering a different world. Below is a short clip of what’s it like “walking in art”.

This place oozes the inside-outside sort of feeling. Not to spoil your potential visits. Here are my highlights.

Resting area. Can lay down, row around etc *LOL*

More resting area, but this one is outdoor with vapour spray 😀 The weather was not with me, it was drizzling all day long.

Skipping the rest of the exhibitions. My favourite was the Viktor & Rolf exhibition. It was interactive and just plan fun 😀ngv-international-viktor-rolf-8933

Visitors were offered paper patterns to create the item of their dreams. That bunch of paper was a hat.

Tips

  • No backpacks or large handbags. There’s  free ‘cloakroom’ to check in your bags at the entrance.
  • If you’re not a shy person, grab a flower on the way out. These flowers are for free on the condition that you give it to a stranger on the way out 😉 spread the love *The moving garden by Lee Mingwei will end 29 Jan 2017
  • Viktor &  Rolf exhibition will end on 26 Feb 2017

  1. This is like a playground for adults – fun! The Viktor & Rolf looks like the perfect marketing vehicle for them. 😉

    • Exactly! Agree that it’s marketing. Wahaha too bad, their stuff are way unaffordable and their perfume is not up my alley 😂

  3. Quite incredible, it was succinct and could be taken in easily in 1.5 hours with an IPOD Touch. I’m getting an artists app for my IPAD
