Leviathan, Anish Kapoor

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Each year MONUMENTA invites an internationally-renowned artist to turn their vision to the vast Nave of Paris’ Grand Palais and to create a new artwork especially for this space.

Anish Kapoor describes the work he is creating for MONUMENTA as follows: “A single object, a single form, a single colour.” “My ambition”, he adds, “is to create a space within a space that responds to the height and luminosity of the Nave at the Grand Palais. Visitors will be invited to walk inside the work, to immerse themselves in colour, and it will, I hope, be a contemplative and poetic experience.”

Designed using the most advanced technologies, the work will not merely speak to us visually, but will lead the visitor on a journey of total sensorial and mental discovery. A technical, poetic challenge unparalleled in the history of sculpture, this work questions what we think we know about art, our body, our most intimate experiences and our origins.
Spectacular and profound, it responds to what the artist considers to be the crux of his work: namely, “To manage, through strictly physical means, to offer a completely new emotional and philosophical experience.”

Bulgari in Grand Palais

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Starting today, December 10, until January 12, Bulgari will be showcasing more than 500 precious items at the Grand Palais in Paris. The retrospective highlights key moments in the history of the celebrated jewellery maker and the development of Bulgari design starting with the opening of the first boutique in Rome’s Via Sistina in 1884 to the present day. The show is divided into periods starting with the first half of the 20th century, moving into the 1960’s when precious stones were used with rarely used original materials, to pop art in the ’70s, bold designs in the ’80s and ’90s, to the designs of the 21st century.

In addition the exhibition will also feature jewellery, drawings, cinema stills and original items from private collections, including items owned by Elizabeth Taylor. Jewellery and art lovers alike should definitely plan to visit this impressive exhibition.
