Some footage of Leviathan, Anish Kapoor’s contribution to Monumenta 2001 at the Grand Palais. This impressive structure is straight out of science fiction, and is truly humbling to witness. It also looks great juxtaposed with the ornate, Beaux-Arts styled surroundings of the Grand Palais. Tomorrow is the last day of the exhibit, and the Grand Palais is open until midnight, so check it out if you can.
Don’t miss the last two days of Monumenta 2011, hosted at the Grand Palais. Following on the heels of Anselm Kiefer, Richard Serra and Christian Boltanski, this year the French Ministry of Culture and Communication has invited Anish Kapoor to create something for the “monumental” space of the Grand Palais’ Nave.
Kapoor says about his work: “A single object, a single form, a single colour. My ambition is to create a space within a space that responds to the height and luminosity of the Nave at the Grand Palais. Visitors are invited to walk inside the work, to immerse themselves in colour, and it will, I hope, be a contemplative and poetic experience.”
Aptly called the Leviathan, visitors can catch this impressive work of art tomorrow, Wednesday from 10:00 to 19:00, and Thursday from 10:00 to 24:00, for €5.
