Anish Kapoor has received a commission to construct The ArcelorMittal Orbit in London’s Olympic Park, continuing his successes in London following a 2003 Unilever installation in the Tate Modern and a 2009 show at the Royal Academy.

The sculpture will be made of tubular steel and will be the tallest in the UK, rising to a height of 115 m- 22m taller than New York’s Statue of Liberty. There will be a special viewing platform near the top, allowing tourists to see spectacular views of all of London. It is already being considered the monument of the Games for the East End.

INDIAN ARTIST IN US SHOW

INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART, BOSTON  To Sept. 7 2008:

 “Anish Kapoor: Past, Present and Future.” (click for images)

The show features 14 works created since 1980 and documents the increasing complexity (his sculptures may appear deceptively simple at first glance) and abstraction of Kapoor’s colorful sculptures and installations.

The Indian-born artist (b. 1954), a winner of the Turner Prize in 1991, belongs, with Tony Cragg and Richard Deacon, to a generation of inventive British sculptors.
