Yves Béhar brings together surf and art in one shack
The small hut is made of standard plywood and corrugated plastic, just like the ordinary surf-shacks of Florida’s coasts. The bohemian vibe typical of these shelters was swapped for a more serious cubic shape and an outer grid-system shelving, that makes the little building look like some sort of constructivist art piece rising from the sand. The strictness of the facade is loosened by the various surf-related ephemera collected and displayed on the shelves.
Inside, the space features Béhar’s own surfing gear, and his collection of contemporary art pieces by Robert Longo, Barry McGee, Ilewelly Ludlow, and John Severson amongst others. The two latter dealing exclusively with translating the essence of surfing to canvas, other artists from Béhar’s personal collection are also from the light-hearted kind. While definitely working as an extension of Béhar’s personal ego, or at least interest, the Surf Shack is without doubt an interesting and appropriate addition to the Miami art feast.
