A permanent exhibit by German painter and sculptor Anselm Kiefer opens on Friday 25 September in the exhibition space HangarBicocca in Milan, with entry free four days a week.
The installation I Sette Palazzi celesti (2004 – 2015) will be enriched by Kiefer’s five totally new works in what the curators describe as “a colossal permanent exhibit realised by one of the most prestigious contemporary artists.”
The exhibition draws its name from an ancient, cabalistic work dating from the 4th-5th centuries AD, describing the symbolic voyage of spiritual initiation of mankind towards God.
The installation of five, up to 18m- high reinforced concrete towers with texts in neon, will combine with the five large-scale paintings to develop the theme of the historical work.
