Shooting into the Corner

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

If you like gooey, splattery messes, you should check out sculptor Anish Kapoor’s piece, Shooting into the Corner in which he’s setup an air cannon packed with red wax that fires into a corner every 20 minutes.

The end result is a terrific splat. Any wax not immediately melted and splattered on the wall crumbles and tumbles into a lovely pile on the floor. The past few months, this process has started to create quite a mess. Kapoor calls this piece Shooting into the Corner, and it’s part of his art exhibit at the Royal Academy of Art in London. If you live in London, you have until December 11th to see it for yourself.

You can also see a live webcam of his installation here, or read more about it at Londonist or BDonline.
