Upon entering this new shrine of modern art on the South Bank, I felt as if I entered a different world of beds, sheep, and bodies all suddenly thrown in front of my eyes.
The Gallery itself is set out beautifully. Each work seems to be Tossed into its own section or room. There are no ropes or boundaries, thus you feel as if you're actually a part of the art itself. The works have plenty of breathing room so you are able to soak up every bit of expression, angst and humanity these works ooze.
A spokesperson for the gallery stated that they are happy to be "adding to the cultural community of the South Bank" and the be "easing people into appreciation of contemporary art". I warn residents of SE1 to ease in slowly because the Saatchi Gallery will surprise you.
