Anish Kapoor in Nottingham

Yesterday, after delivering a talk at Nottingham Trent University, I had a little time to spend before catching my train back to Lincoln. So, I wandered up to the Castle Museum to see the travelling Anish Kapoor exhibition. It featured a few of his smaller, early works which I believe are not frequently displayed. In this small, intimate show in the upstairs long gallery, you can see the beginnings of experimentation and investigation in movement and the propeties of materials and surfaces. For example, the smaller works using red wax pointed towards the development of the monumental Svayambh (in Sanskrit – ‘self-generated’). This was the huge block of red wax that moved sedately through the halls of the Royal Academy in his 2009 show.

I was lucky to be able to see the show with just a few people around – quite a contrast with my experiences of London exhibitions. If you’re in the Nottingham area in the next couple of months, you must see this!Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
