Monumenta 2011 by Anish Kapoor
Monumenta 2011 opened last night, presenting Anish Kapoor’s exceptional outsized sculpture ‘Leviathan’ within the Grand Palais. The artist describes the work he created for Monumenta as “a single object, a single form, a single colour.” The visitor can not only contemplate the PVC monochrome monolith from the outside, but actually walk inside it, for a fairly suffocating immersive experience in what feels like a living body. See AFP report here on Dailymotion. Watch the Artnet itv here. There is a great program of evening events for the duration of the show too, see it here.
