Awe-inspiring artist Anish Kapoor at Paris’ Grand Palais

The artist Anish Kapoor is currently exhibiting at Paris’ Grand Palais as part of a yearly exhibition showcasing the works of some of the most internationally renowned artists. Like those that have exhibited before him, Kapoor was asked to turn his vision to the vast interior space of the 19th century building that was erected as part of the universal exhibition that also gave birth to Paris’s most famous monument, the Eiffel tower.

The work can be viewed either from within or outside the sculpture. It is on a truly monumental scale and puts Kapoor in that rare category of artist who is able to create work that is quite simply awe-inspiring.
