The Monumenta series is sponsored by the French government’s Ministry of Culture and invites the world’s leading artists to fill the space. To art lovers around the world, Anish Kapoor needs no introduction. I won’t go into any description, the sculpture can be appreciated on many levels and does not always need interpretation. Anyone wanting to know more about his work should follow this link to his website.
A feat always to work in this space, a gigantic glass house built in the Belle Époque era in glass and iron.
Anish Kapoor rose to the occasion admirably. I am silenced for a change, the work speaks volumes.We are all diminished.The building requires a powerful statement.The wonderful light during the day.The amazing balcony in iron.
Floors could be in Pompei they are so worn.
If you haven’t worked it out by now, the first red photos are what we encountered when we first went inside, the purple forms are the exterior.
Doug Hall, the previous Director of the Queensland Art Galley was honoured on his retirement by the gallery when they purchased an Anish Kapoor sculpture and dedicated it to him for his service. Just a small connection to our humble state of Queensland.
