Here is a blogpost to remind you that Monumenta, a very special artistic Tour de Force will be opening next 11 May in the Nef du Grand Palais in Paris.
The concept is simple, yet it poses an incredible challenge: a gigantic, 13,500 sq meters place, the Nef du Grand Palais, welcomes an exclusive piece made especially for the event by one of the most renowned contemporary artists. This year Indian born, British artist Anish Kapoor known among other works for his iconic Cloud Gate, has worked on producing an object to confront the space of the Grand Palais.
In his most recent interviews, he has evoked how it is not just about being gigantic -and it will, with a piece that will be about 61 088 m3- but also about infusing all this space and volume with meaning.
It will be thrilling to see the process of building the piece, which has already started, as you can see on our Facebook page:
To follow the whole building/mounting process, we invite you to check regularly our Facebook and Twitter page. Several surprises and bonuses will also be added in the following days so the good thing will be to keep posted to see how you can - if you are in Paris - experience Monumenta and Anish Kapoor in many different ways and forms...shhh!
Keep an eye on the following days and see you at the opening, hopefully!
