Anish Kapoor, Dirty corner
The entrance was goblet-shaped; the interior and exterior surface was circular and with only a minimum contact with the ground. The artwork was progressively covered with soil transported by a conveyor belt linked to a silo outside the cathedral.
The making of Dirty corner
The exhibition project curated both the placement/location and the technical aspects of the whole/complex sculpture. Both the conveyer belt and the storage hopper were built and customized expressly for the show.
