MOSCOW, September 21 /TASS/. Anish Kapoor’s "My Red Homeland" opened at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre in Moscow on Monday.
Kapoor is a famous contemporary artist and sculptor. He is the winner of prestigious international awards including the Turner Prize. At present, his works are on display in Versaille where his object called the "Dirty Corner" has been a target of numerous vandal attacks. The last attack took place on September 5.
According to Kapoor, the title object of "My Red Homeland" (2003) exposition is still being created. It is a steel knife, which cuts wax filled with red pigment on a disk with a diameter of 12 metres.
Colour has always been important for me. For me it forms the basis of my creative search. Perhaps, it is a direct consequence that I was born in India, Kapoor stressed.
He added he liked the idea of combining sculpture with architecture. The artist has spent plenty of time for studying their reciprocal influence on each other.
Ten trucks were used to bring "My Red Homeland" to Moscow from London. Twelve experts were involved to install it at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre.
My Red Homeland will open for Moscow public on September 22.
