The Saatchi Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in London that showcases some fairly interesting (and controversial) art. Some of the pieces seem like desperate cries for attention, while others are so abstract that you wonder how anyone in their right mind can formulate coherent theories about them, but all are at least entertaining to look at. One of my favorite works was the shark preserved in formaldehyde, a terrifying display of nature's most graceful and deadly predator emerging through the murky depths. Another cool exhibit was a room almost entirely covered with mirrors.
Damien Hirst's shark.

I have to comment about this one as this gallery is a changing exhibit, and only a few rooms there are fixed. When I was there a year ago Damien Hirst's shark wasn't there, but the coolest room there was this room which was filled with oil to the middle, and you walk inside it and it looks like a mirror, but it's the black pitch of blackness.
