Over the fall of 2010, visitors to the serene and stately grounds of Kensington Gardens in London encountered four monumental stainless-steel sculptures by Anish Kapoor, carefully situated to reflect and distort in their mirrored surfaces the weather, the wildlife and the changing colors of the surrounding foliage. Visible from afar, Kapoor's sculptures interact with the locale with a tremendous sensitivity, while opening up whole new vistas and indeed "turning the world upside down." A tinted "Sky Mirror" disc planted in the Serpentine lake transforms the grey London sky into a dramatic and luminous red; a fluted, conical, mirrored structure seems to suck up the earth and siphon it into the sky. Illustrated with full-color plates of these works in situ, "Turning the World Upside Down in Kensington Gardens" is also the first Kapoor monograph to offer a comprehensive overview of all of the artist's stainless steel sculptures.
