You're reading: Concrete and blood-red wax: British art in Kyiv

First up is a major new exhibition of sculptor Anish Kapoor. Kapoor has beenone of my favourite artists since I saw his 1991 Turner Prize-winning exhibit at the old Tate Gallery (this was before the Tate Modern opened in 2000).

Kapoor also has a work, called “Turning the World Inside Out” inside the British Embassy in Berlin. I used to walk past it every day when I worked there from 1999-2002.

Kapoor’s exhibition at the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kyiv from 19 May to 30 September is his first solo exhibition in eastern Europe and contains, in addition to other existing and new works (“12 monumental concrete mounds”) 2009′s famous “Shooting into the Corner”, which fires red wax across a room.
