As part of the 13th Biennale de Lyon – La vie moderne, the famous sculptor Anish Kapoor is meeting architect Le Corbusier by installing a selection of his works at the Couvent Sainte-Marie de La Tourette. A surprising encounter between the modern movement and contemporary art, which creates a dialogue between this monument of architecture, the spiritual dimension of this place and the massive sculptures of the artist. Among the pieces selected for this exhibition are the famous Sky Mirror and the Non-Object (Spire 4), mirrors structures, but also some very organic creations made of silicone, where the material plays with the raw texture of the walls of the convent.
Anish Kapoor, whose sculpture Dirty Corner installed in Versailles was again deteriorated yesterday, was invited by the Dominicans of La Tourette, who program for seven years now some contemporary art exhibitions in the Couvent Sainte-Marie de La Tourette, designed as meetings between the works of a plastic artist and the architectural work of Le Corbusier. The exhibition runs until January 3, 2016. More information: Couvent de La Tourette / Biennale de Lyon.
