Free entry and only 2 of the 5 floors were open. On floor 2 a single room housed a cross section of soil levels with bones and worms - not real. Some may call it contemporary art and some, like me, think it all a...More

The video I think you're looking for is called 'A Vicious Undertow'. It's available on youtube. Fingers crossed it's the right one x
