Leviathan (2011) by Anish Kapoor

Anish Kapoor’s truly monumental installation Leviathan, currently at Monumenta at the Grand Palais in Paris, is shown in all its beauty (well, perhaps not all) in a post published by the great design blog Designboom, entitled, in Designboom’s own pithy manner, “anish kapoor: monumenta 2011 – leviathan“.  A true feast for the eyes, with absolutely wonderful photos, and fascinating comments by Kapoor himself, in video, below.  All thanks to Designboom.  Bravo and merci!!

Memory” by Anish Kapoor, at the Deutsche Guggenheim (2009)

Natasha Garnett has written “Anish in Paris”, in the WSJ Magazine section of The Wall Street Journal, an excellent article and interview with the renowned, ambitious and charming Indian-born, British artist Anish Kapoor, looking at his work, his thoughts about art and fame, and his upcoming monumental work, Leviathan“, for Monumenta in Paris:  An enormous inflatable “balloon”, a major departure for the artist, who has worked almost exclusively with solid, predominantly metal, constructions, that will fill the vast, light-filled nef of the Grand Palais in Paris from 11 May- 23 June 2011.

Haunting image of motherhood … Louise Bourgeois’s Mamon in the Tate Modern Turbine Hall.

Adrian Searle, Jonathan Jones, Charlotte Higgins and Skye Sherwin have written an interesting article entitled “The Tate Modern at 10” in The Guardian, looking at the exhibitions and artists featured in the Tate Modern’s cavernous Turbine Hall since its opening ten years ago.  The article includes excerpts of interviews with such luminaries as Louise Bourgeois (who turns 100 years old this year!!), Juan Munoz, Anish Kapoor, Olafur Eliasson, Bruce Nauman and others.  Inspirational, encouraging, thought provoking work.  Marvelous.

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 10 October 2009

Beginning wednesday 21 October 2009 the 24 ton Cor-Ten steel site-specific (Guggenheim NYC and Guggenheim Berlin) sculpture by Indian-born UK-based artist Anish Kapoor will be on exhibition at the Guggenheim NYC.  Enormously delicate, gently overwhelming.
