21 Nov-24 Feb.
There is a bit of everything here from Ontani; early photographs, cardboard cut-outs, drawings, ceramic busts and statues, painted masques. There could not be a more perfect space for this exhibition. On the ground floor, Ontani’s colourful and delicate masques hang from Hendrik Andersen's massive statues, off-setting their plaster whiteness.
Upstairs, in the labyrinth of rooms, Ontani’s works pop out from unexpected places, part serious, part playful. During the exhibition entry to the museum is at set hours, in small groups (not more than 15) and accompanied by a guide. Go to this dreamland exhibition (even the names of the works are masterpieces) and you will understand why. Check the website for times and telephone bookings as entry is on the hour every hour in groups of not more than 15.
