Leviathan – Installation


Our appreciation for the work of Anish Kapoor and the press release about the Monumenta exihibition at the Grand Palais were enough to make us plan a weekend in Paris on the fly.

At first we were surprised that it was possible to enter inside the inflated sculpture, and we lingered long in the unusual space in spite of the pressurized air and the rumbles and echoes.

Then, the moment we were going to exit, the sun came out of the clouds, and we realized how the minimal form of the contemporary installation was deeply able to relate with the iron vaults and steel framing of the Grand Palais.
