Anish Kapoor has dedicated his largest ever artwork – a truly enormous cathedral-like space made from inflated PVC – to the missing Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.
The sculptor called for a worldwide day of action where museums and galleries close for one day in sympathy for the plight of his fellow artist. “Why not?” he asked.
Ai, whose sunflower seeds work in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall closed at the weekend, has been missing for about a month, in the hands of the Chinese authorities. He had not been heard from, nor charged with any offence.
Anish Kapoor’s Leviathan is at the Grand Palais, Paris, until 23 June
