Today I had a wander around the NGV.  I photographed some of my favourite pieces.

1. The exterior, which is surrounded by a moat-like water feature.  2. An attendant through the glass wall water feature (supplied by rain water) in the entrance.  3. Leigh Bowery, Pregnant tutu head 1992.  Donated by Nicola Bateman Bowery.  Although Leigh was gay, he married his long term friend Nicola Bateman 7 months before his death (at just 33) in London.  A video of Bowery wearing the outfit here 4. Andy Warhol, Self Portrait No. 9 1986 (acrylic and screenprint on canvas).  5. Yayoi Kusuma, Tender are the Stairs to Heaven.
