  • 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 ?  more »
  • It's a pity that this avant-garde art Centre has been closed. You could access walk by the beach, but also by boat since a port was built at all... Once inside you were "between sky and sea" ready for an extraordinary journey. Blessed are those who have had the time to enjoy it until it was closed for reason of?

  • As soon as open, soon closed... Walking in St-Agay between New York City and Fréjus/St-Raphaël, my attention is attracted by a Caterpillar crane in lace of Brugge, abandoned on a ground concreted near the coastal road... It is an old 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 city of Roquebrune (Issambres) has issued an order of cessation of activity late August 2015... I recognize "direct" one of the metal sculptures of Win Delvoye... and turning area, I wonder what still doing this work of artist which is estimated to be 1,800,000 euros... Ahhhhhhh! crazy art and artists care..., it was much more fun for me, a few years ago (2010), while he exhibited at the Museum of the Louvre, to meet Wim Delvoye in flesh and bone, rather than see one of its works abandoned along the Mediterranean... I remember Win Delvoye twirling in the apartments of Napoleon III to the Museum, it was dotted with pigs in carpet Iranian silk and a multitude of Christ on the cross and other twisted as the DNA filaments sculptures, it was almost enjoyable..., however, try to understand his world in front of a pig skin tattooed hung alone on the white of a gallery wall It was not obvious. Front-end to the Flemish Belgian humour, elegant casualness and talk had what unseat whoever s (e) French... who were with him and me, the visit for the opening of his exhibition at the Louvre. Now, it's over..., "Port Tonic Art Center, Museum of contemporary art" [ex-garage Yamaha-naval (shipyard), the sign is still in place]..., it's empty, abandoned, a sign indicates authorization to work never started... I have done several times the trick, there's only a guard to know anything about who's taking it easy..., if I see "get moving", I'll ask a few questions... Everything is gone, except the crane Caterpillar (1,800,000 euros) to Win Delvoye, which has not changed a bit..., yet everything began early 2015..., six months later it was empty (until end of August 2015 there still works)...

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