World Upside Down, London by Anish Kapoor

A quiet stretch of grass and lakes at this time of year the gardens are transformed into a mixed mass of bronze, tan, beige and burgundy with the maturation of chestnuts and leaves begin to turn. Divisive designer Anish Kapoor has worked with the Royal Parks and the Serpentine Gallery to intensify this experience changed for the general public, displaying a collection of highly reflective sculptures together in London for the first time.

Kapoor familiarly expressive yet simple designs add another dimension to the picturesque gardens of Kensington, just fill the void left by Jean Nouvel, Serpentine Pavilion Scarlet is currently being dismantled. Although his style can not be deformed to everyone’s taste, this series of contemplative sculptures appeals to a wide audience and aims to initiate and strengthen relations between the urban and natural environment – a connection so often lost in such high density urban settings.
