At Tasmania’s MONA or Museum of Old and New Art, a visitor will find items that will amaze and shock. British sculpture Richard Wilson installation 20:50 lives here, it is an amazing piece of work allowing a visitor to literally participate in the work.
The British sculptor’s most famous design is a slick concept: extraordinary and mind-warping: you step alone onto an angular metal walkway in the centre of a room that has been flooded with recycled engine oil (20:50 takes its title from the substance viscosity). The glossy, viscous surface stretches out and appears as solid mass reflecting light from above. David Walsh the museum’s owner and creator now owns this piece and calls it ” A beautiful retelling of sump oil”
