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 - will be 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 will bring together sensual and beguiling sculptures from some of the diverse language of materials Kapoor works in, from pigment, stone, mirror, prints  and gouache drawings.

Through this exhibition, Galleri F 15 takes an art-historical look back at a less familiar art direction in American postwar history. Beat art took on several formal expressions, but an expressive and vital image expression was characteristic, usually executed in the materials the artists had at hand. The formats were often large and heroic, like the East Coast´s more famous abstract expressionism. The Beat culture (which included artists, writers, musicians and bohemians) was a rebel movement that challenged the expressions of freedom of speech and questioned the values of the American post-war community.

The artworks in this exhibition are on loan from the Wennesland Collection in Kristiansand, the University of Agder and Kristiansand Cathedral School.
