MONUMENTA is an ambitious artistic encounter unmatched anywhere in the world, organized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. Each year MONUMENTA invites an internationally renowned contemporary artist to appropriate the 13,500 m² of the Grand Palais Nave with an artwork specially created for the event.
It is this challenge that Anish Kapoor takes up on his own terms for Monumenta 2011, from 11th May to 23rd June. Giving a face to the concept of the universal artist, the Bombay-born British sculptor fascinates and enchants with his artworks at the edge of worlds. The falsely simple lines, often achieved by technological exploits, as well as their immediate visual impact, changes those who explore his artworks by foot or by eye – changing them in both how they see and how they think. To create an aesthetic and physical shock, an experience of colour that is simultaneously poetic, thoughtful and formidable, one on a scale with the verticality and light of the Nave, “this interior greater than any exterior”: thus can be summarized Anish Kapoor’s ambition for MONUMENTA 2011, for his return to Paris thirty years after his very first exhibition.
