Brisbane no longer has one art gallery. In an adjoining building, was the modern art gallery of more than ten years, The Goma. This one seemed to excite the many students visiting the gallery far more than the subdued original site.
Firstly, there was a slide from the top floor right back down to the entrance. The best part was watching the unsure students hesitate before the final push that ended in a matter of seconds at the bottom.
Then there was the realistic works, one in particular creeped me out. It was not only the size of the sculptures that was hypnotic, but Ron Mueck’s — In Bed wouldn’t let me leave. Like other viewers, I had to study the art work from all angles.
