Imagine a world filled with colorful creatures floating around in an orange sky. A world where you can dance the night away in a circus, with muscular full-bred stallions trotting around wearing clown's masks?
Encounters with hybrid Formula 1 hammerhead sharks and a girl with hair from head to toe who tenderly touches your hand? This is not a dream!

Fantasy island - Exhibition Robinson shows the work of 13 international artists. On the surface these artists seem to invite us to wander around in their fantasy world. When we take a closer look though, there seems to be more than meets the eye. This often bizarre universe appears to be constructed by the artist through a series of rewritten laws of nature.
Have we discovered an individual paradise or are we taking an amazing survival trip?
