  • Might just be me but I have driven past this many times and never been able to actually access it. Not sure what the game plan is but if it is an art centre, it needs to be visible ? 
  • What a pity that this avant-garde art Centre has been closed! You could access walk by the beach but also by boat as a port was integrated into all... Once inside you were "between sky and sea" loans for an extraordinary journey. Blessed are those who have had the time to enjoy it before it closed for reason of?

  • As soon as open, soon closed... Walking in St-Agay Issambres and Fréjus/St-Raphaël, my attention is drawn by a Caterpillar crane in lace of Brugge, abandoned in a field concrete near the coastal road... It's a former shipyard [a "Yamaha Marine" sign is still in place (large)], which has been transformed into Art Gallery, but everything is abandoned... The Art Gallery named 'Port Tonic Art Center' was 'open' early 2015 and the Mairie de Roquebrune (les Issambres) has issued an order of cessation of activity late August 2015... I agree 'direct' one of the metal sculptures of Win Delvoye... and turning nearby, I wonder what is still here this artist's work that is estimated to be 1,800,000 euros... Ahhhhhhh! crazy art and artists crazy... it was much more fun for me, a few years ago (2010), while he exhibited at the Museum of the Louvre, meet Wim Delvoye in flesh and bones..., rather than see one of its works abandoned Mediterranean beachfront... I remember Win Delvoye twirling in the apartments of Napoleon III by the Museum, it was dotted with pigs in carpet Iranian silk and a multitude of Christ on the cross and other twisted and DNA filaments sculptures, it was almost enjoyable..., however, try to understand his world before a skin of pig tattooed hung herself on the white of a gallery wall This was not obvious. Belgian humour, elegant casualness and front-end to the Flemish speaking had what unseat whoever s (e) Franchouillard... who were with him and me, the visit of his exhibition at the Louvre. Now it is finished..., "Port Tonic Art Center, Museum of contemporary art" [ex Yamaha-Marine (a shipyard), the sign is still in place]..., it is empty, abandoned..., a sign indicates an authorization of work who have never started... I made several times the Tower, there is only a guardian aware of nothing that is the cast fresh..., if I see "Let's get moving", I'll ask a few questions... Everything is gone, except the crane Caterpillar (1,800,000 EUR) Win Delvoye, which has not budged a bit..., yet everything began early 2015..., six months later it was empty (until end of August 2015 there were still works)...

  • An exceptional site between sky and sea dedicated to contemporary art, not to be missed in the Gulf of Saint Tropez.
