HIS GRAND CRE­ATIONS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - THE CULTURE -

As if a stroll in the Gar­dens of Ver­sailles isn’t awe-in­spir­ing enough; a thought-pro­vok­ing el­e­ment is put for­ward along with Anish Kapoor’s mag­nif­i­cent art pieces. With bold flair, the con­tem­po­rary artist moulded his works to sig­nif­i­cant his­tor­i­cal events, in­clud­ing the French Revo­lu­tion and the fall of Louis XIV. With the idea of space re­main­ing cen­tral to his ex­hi­bi­tion, even to a grand poetic ex­tent, the distin­guished artist chose to play on per­cep­tion. His works act as a con­tra­dic­tion to each other, cre­at­ing a riv­et­ing chaos in Ver­sailles’ or­derly fash­ion. Fear­less and strik­ing, Kapoor’s art is a breath of fresh air. From June 9 to Nov 1 at the Palace of Ver­sailles, France. www.chateau­ver­sailles-spec­ta­cles.fr
