I have already made a post about the Grand Palais, built for the World’s Fair (Exposition Universelle) 1900. The building is large and proposes several exhibitions simultaneously, a few of them in the nave, under the fantastic glass and iron roof. The one that takes place at present (until June 23, 2011) is the fourth in a series that started four years ago,”Monumenta”, for the exhibition of gigantic works. This year the invited artist is Anish Kapoor, who has made an enormous installation-sculpture under the name of “Leviathan”, the sea monster.
You can even enter the “monster”.
Here are some other examples of Kapoor’s creations elsewhere in the world, including what is still under preparation and will be ready for the London Olympic Games 2012.
