Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors working today, known for creating ambitious public sculptures adventurous in both form and engineering across vastly different scales and materials. Design Limited Edition brings a new art installation for you to explore and be mesmerized at the most amazing modern art pieces.
The art exhibition will feature 24 sculptures as well as a selection of drawings and smaller works representative of Anish Kapoor’s groundbreaking body of contemporary design work created over the past 40 years. Presented together, this series of works will challenge the classical architecture of the house and the idyllic beauty of the grounds, whilst being in continuous dialogue and engagement with Houghton’s history.
“Anish Kapoor is a magician. His elegant reflective contemporary art pieces throwback the world in mysterious ways. We are proud to have the opportunity to present an important group of Anish Kapoor’s work at Houghton, and are delighted to be able to welcome visitors once again.”said Lord Cholmondeley, owner of Houghton.
Curator Mario Codognato has taken advantage of the landscaped vistas, idyllic vantage points, and the building’s grandiose architecture, to make the most of optical effects, voids, and volumes that characterize Anish Kapoor’s work.
The result is a series of visual and conceptual exchanges between inside and outside, reality and artifice, nature and culture, and chance and order that not only showcases modern artist’s work in a new light but also alters the visitor’s experience of Houghton Hall itself.
