Just thinking over the exo i when to in London over a year ago now!

Kapoors sculptural installation ‘Hive’ is a huge hollowed out funnel shape made from rusted steel is the first thing to confront visitors at the main entrance. People walking through the front door are instantly greeted by two steel walls converging towards each until they meet in the centre, leaving a thin oval shaped hole. If you dare look through this orifice like gap you are given a tantalizing glimpse of what appears to be a huge unexplored steel abyss. A view the curators tells us evokes Courbet’s L’Origine du Monde, -the French painter’s daringly explicit and close-up landscape of a woman’s vulva.......

Hive - Anish Kapoor

Origin of the world - Gustave Courbet
