The Sa Bassa Blanca Museum is a symbiotic space between art, nature and architecture, founded by artists Yannick Vu and Ben Jakober to promote cultural development and respect for the natural environment. It is located in a spectacular geographical enclave, where the visitor will enjoy a unique sensory experience. The most outstanding architectural detail in Sa Bassa Blanca is without doubt, the building designed by Hassan Fathy.
We will also visit one of the most original art collections in Europe, Nins, which is formed by more than 150 portraits of children from the 16th to the 19th centuries from different European countries. These works are located in a former underground water reservoir converted into an exhibition space in 1994 with minimum intervention and conditioned to house and conserve the paintings.
Sa Bassa Blanca Museum has a ”zoo” comprising large granite works created by Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu, located in the gardens surrounding the museum. It consists of animals inspired by archaeological pieces that are located in various museums around the world. These models have been reinterpreted in granite increasing their scale.
The protected area of 16 hectares between sea and mountain harbours all the above and more, and was chosen because of its tremendous potential. It has been transformed using autochthonous flora in an unobtrusive way and is being kept with tender loving care in total respect of the environment. It is the realization of a dream that Yannick Vu and Ben Jakober are happy to share with us.
