First there was the austere, New York-quoting Saatchi Gallery on Boundary Road, akin to big museum halls, large and imposing with London artist Richard Wilsonís unforgettable oil-filled room, 20:50, tucked into a corner. Wilsonís work looked even more terrifying in Saatchiís next space, County Hall, which had served as the headquarters for the Greater London Council for years. With a great sense of the absurd, Saatchi left the paneled rooms largely untouched.
