Anish Kapoor has continued to explore the power of pigment by transforming a room into a bright red landscape based on the unseen borders that separate the modern world.
The installation, titled Destierro, is on show at the Parque de la Memoria in Argentina – marking the first time that the British artist has put on a solo exhibition in the country.
The Parque de la Memoria, also known simply as Remembrance Park, was created as a memorial to the victims of the military regime that ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1983.
Made up of three installations, the exhibition, also titled Destierro, explores the displacement of civilians during this period of time, as well as a type of “new geography” brought about by situations such as the refugee crisis. The title of the exhibition translates to “unearth”.
“Destierro can be seen as one of the major global dramas of our time,” said the curator, Marcello Dantas. “This exhibition was reborn in light of our urgent times.”
“The real borders of today’s world are no longer the ones that separate nations, as some leaders would have you see, but the borders that separate those that have some bit of ground to stand on and those that have none.”
