Anish Kapoor at Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich
1 October 2020
At the invitation of the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen, Anish Kapoor has created a site-specific sculpture for the Rotunda, the central hub of the Pinakothek der Moderne. The installation will transform viewers’ experience of the space and form a focal point in the ‘Kunstareal’ museum complex in Munich for eleven months.
Kapoor is world renowned for his often monumental and enigmatic works that traverse the boundaries between sculpture and architecture. His installation for the Rotunda continues his exploration of the symbiotic relationship between building and object. HOWL (2020) is an immense PVC sculpture which fills the Rotunda, creating a vast monochrome void space that challenges the viewer’s physical and sensory perception of interior and exterior, material and immaterial; a work that is both object and what Kapoor has termed the ‘non-object’.
