Leviathan is a Anish Kapoor’s newest artwork that located in Paris, France, was designed by Anish Kapoor. Scarlet regularly plays a large part in the abstract sculpture of Anish Kapoor. The Turner Prize winning artist regularly experiments with size, form, texture and material, however an injection of colour is rarely lacking from his work. Previous examples of this can be seen in his designs for the ‘Orbit’ (a spiralling viewing tower dreamt up for the 2012 London Olympic Games), the ‘Marsyas’ sculpture in 2002, and more recently in ‘Turning the World Upside Down’ (a series of mirrored surfaces scattered throughout London’s Kensington Palace Gardens).
Kapoor’s penchant for crimson hues can now be discovered in a six week stint in the Nave at the Grand Palais in Paris, as an immense red mass expands to fit the 13,500 sq m volume. Invited by the French Ministry for Culture and Communication as part of the MONUMENTA series
