This is the last bit of art I’ll show from the Primaria. I’ve no idea what it’s all about.

I popped into the Primaria (Town Hall) on Piata Mare to see if there was an exhibition on. There was some modern art there, so I took a few pictures.

I’m not really sure what’s going on here – I think I preferred the pictures.

I think Uwe and Gert Tobias are the artists, but could be wrong.

[Whoops I posted this a day early by mistake! In response to Ian’s comment, Samuel Brukenthal was the Habsburg Governor of Transylvania and general bigwig, based in Sibiu, in the late 18th/early 19th century. His house is now the Brukenthal Museum which is on Piata Mare and which was featured a few months ago on the blog]

Over the next few days I’ll show a few more of the exhibits from the Contemporary Art Gallery. I don’t know if they’re still there or if this was just a temporary exhibition.

Carry On Screaming

I must be honest, although I really liked the staircase, I was a bit disappointed with the exhibits in the Contemporary Art Gallery. I did take a few photos though, so I shall show those over the next few days. I took this one as it made me smile – all Brits know the “Carry On” films, which are a British cultural institution from the 1960s and 1970s, and I think “Carry On Screaming” is one of my favourites 😀 (altogether now: “Frying tonight?!”)

Art installation in action

This is the art installation I showed last week, this time being explored and discovered by quite a lot of people. If you stood inside the metal rods, electronic notes would be emitted, presumably as you crossed some sort of beam – it kind of reminded me of a giant theremin.
