2014, Day 11: ‘Tall Tree and the Eye’, Anish Kapoor, Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul

 

Anish Kapoor is by far and away one of my favourite contemporary artists.  Having spent a lot of today looking at modern art, we came to the conclusion that more modern artists should have fun with their work, and be less angsty.  Anish Kapoor is certainly an artist who seems to have fun with his work – and he will bring the viewer along with him.  We’ve come across his work in New York and Manchester before now and always leave with a rye ‘ah, you bugger…’ after viewing and indirectly interacting with his art.  Another piece on display at the Leeum museum in Seoul is a hexagonal mirror (on loan from the Met in New York, I think), which messes with your head as you view it and then again when you speak into it, as it changes the acoustics quite dramatically around you.  He is a very clever man.  If you don’t know his work, it’s worth a look, should you come across it!

  1. Nice image Mafl,
    I was part of the team that built Tall tree for Samsung. I wasn’t part of the instal team so didn’t get any shots of it in all its glory unwrapped in the open. Tall tree at the Guggenheim has lots of images around. If you took any shots of tall tree Korea in full height I would love to see them, Regards Dave.
