The newly restored Pitzhanger Gallery has marked its place as a major cultural venue, with the inaugural exhibition featuring a series of sculptures by Anish Kapoor.
Photographs can’t do this series of curving and disorientating mirrored sculptures justice. The clarity and immersive nature of the dizzying pieces, literally turn the newly restored setting on its head.
The Gallery was good before, it’s world-class now! Congratulations to everyone who’s been involved in the entire project. It really is a showstopper and has added yet another jewel to our mighty suburban Queen’s crown.
Anish Kapoor (b.1954 in Mumbai) has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s. One of the most influential sculptors of his generation, his invention of sculptural language and form has constantly challenged the way we view the world. Large-scale commissions include Marsyas (2002), for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, Cloud Gate (2004) in Chicago’s Millennium Park, Leviathan at the Grand Palais, as part of Monumenta (2011) and Orbit (2012) at the Queen Elizabeth Park London.
Anish Kapoor, 16 March 2019 – 18 August 2019, Pitzhanger Gallery
Tickets for Anish Kapoor will be on sale from February 2019.
