This week LawfullyChic recommends that you don’t miss the chance to view the world upside down, through the eyes of revolutionary sculptor Anish Kapoor CBE (particularly now the sun has come out!).
As part of the Serpentine’s 40th anniversary programme, ‘Turning the World Upside Down’ consists of 4 giant mirrored sculptures set within the grounds of Kensington Gardens and closes this Sunday March 13th.
Stood amongst the greenery, trees and ponds, Kapoor’s reflective stainless steel creations generate illusory distortions prompting viewers to question their surroundings and the natural environment (often forgotten in our hectic city lives). The 6-month exhibition has captured the seasonal changes in the park that hasn’t hosted a sculptural exhibition of this kind since that of Henry Moore in 1978.
It’s strangely therapeutic, open daily, from dusk ’til dawn, and… it’s free!
