Anish Kapoor

30 June- 14 October

A major exhibition by one of the UK’s leading artists, Anish Kapoor

Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential and internationally renowned artists of our time. This landmark exhibition is the first major show of Kapoors work to be held in Galleri F 15, Moss this summer. The solo show has been carefully selected featuring important earlier works from the Arts Council and British Council collections presented alongside the Sky Mirror from the artist’s studio together with other loans from Norway.

Sky Mirror - is placed in the beautiful baroque garden in front of the main building of Galleri F 15. The sculpture pulls the sky down to the earth in a sublime union of the elemental forces of landscape; presenting a proposition about space and the nature of the object that is such a central enquiry in Kapoor’s work. 

This comprehensive exhibition  brings together sensual and beguiling sculptures from some of the diverse language of materials Kapoor works in, from pigment, stone, mirror, prints  and gouache drawings.

Please note

Several of the sculptures of Anish Kapoor are covered with a pigment powder that can not withstand any kind of touch. Due to the vulnerability and high insurance value of the sculptures, visitors are organized into groups of up to 10 people and led by an exhibition host. New group is given access every 30 minutes. There can be some waiting time. There is a 12-year age limit in the exhibition.
