The mystery is over- Anish Kapoor is the latest artist to exhibit work at l’École des Beaux Arts.
His series, Cement Works is set up in the school’s chapel, Chapelle des Petits-Augustins.
Here is an excerpt of the artist statement:
“These works bear witness to the artist’s interest in self-generation, a concept inherited from the Sanskrit word svayambh. In essence, Anish Kapoor’s sculptures give the sensation of not having been created by human hand and of having always been there, following the example of certain astoundingly beautiful forms built up over thousands of years by the forces of nature: one thinks of coral ounds or certain rocky outcrops…”
Cement Works is on display Tuesday-Sunday, 11-7 until June 11th.
