New Dubai space MAD Gallery is all about kinetic art, innovation and craftsmanship
09 February, 2016
Walking into MAD Gallery is a bit like stepping into a very high-end gadget shop or an ultra-cool playground for tech-geeks. The initials stand for Mechanical Art Devices, and the items on sale in the gallery/boutique include handmade motorbikes by Japanese artist Chicara Nagata – each one takes three years to craft and will set you back by Dh1.7 million. There are also floating sculptures made from thousands of vintage watch parts, created by French artist Quentin Carnaille, and atmospheric photographs by Swiss artist Marc Ninghetto featuring the Japanese superhero Grandizer in different urban settings. Dubai is the third city to get a MAD Gallery, after Geneva in Switzerland, and Taipei in Taiwan.
