Anish Kapoor in Versailles
AJ+ presents Anish Kapoor’s controversial Dirty Corner, part of the artist's large-scale installation in Versailles in 2015. Kapoor originally described this monumental steel work as “the Queen’s vagina taking power”, albeit later clarifying that it was open to free interpretation.

After Dirty Corner was criticized by politicians and citizens and became the object of vandalism, Kapoor decided to keep it as a “carrier of the hate it attracted”.

This video also recalls and presents another controversial work, Paul McCarthy’s The Tree, a green inflatable sculpture, 24 meters in height, that was punctured by an individual two days after its installation in Place Vendôme, Paris.
