Anish Kapoor's S-Curve
Through July 19, 2009, visitors may see themselves and their surroundings distorted through a 7-foot-high, 32-foot-long polished metal double curve sculpture installed in the Sackler Gallery’s entrance pavilion. London based Anish Kapoor (born in Bombay, 1954) is renowned for his subtle use of pure form, and his 2006 sculpture S-Curve transforms the sometimes stuffy and serious Sackler Gallery’s permanent collection of classical and ancient Asian masterworks. As enjoyable as a fun-house mirror!
