Anish Kapoor Funnel in Brooklyn Bridge Park

Sculptures and installations by British artist Anish Kapoor, Turner Prize laureate, Commander of the British Empire and a member of the Royal Academy of Arts in the world's best museums. Recently, another of his works adorned Brooklyn Bridge Park, located under the famous Brooklyn Bridge in New York.

It is a giant funnel (eight meters in diameter), noisily sucking water deep into the ground. To prevent curious viewers from checking how deep this water hole is, the art object is prudently surrounded by an iron fence.

This is not the first funnel of Anish Kapoor. He first created such an installation in 2015 for the Biennale of Arts in Kochi, India, but then it was placed indoors and the water was painted black, giving the impression of a black hole.

He later reworked this idea for the street and showed another funnel in the solo exhibition in Versailles. And now the water hole is being exhibited for the first time in the United States, and for the first time, water without dyes is used for it – in order to fully harmonize with the environment and the river. You can see this art object until September 10, after which it will be dismantled.
