Description

In September 2015 Pirelli HangarBicocca opened a new site-specific installation by Anselm Kiefer to the public. Curated by Vicente Todolí, the installation is an extension of I Sette Palazzi Celesti, a permanent work conceived and presented for Pirelli HangarBicocca in 2004 from a project by Lia Rumma. Five large paintings, produced between 2009 and 2013, together with the seven "towers" - now accessible to the public - form a single installation entitled The Seven Heavenly Palaces 2004-2015. The five great canvases - Jaipur (2009); two works from the series Cette obscure clarté qui tombe des étoiles (2011); Alchemie (2012); Die deutsche Heilslinie (2012-2013) - are exhibited in the space of the "Navate" which houses the permanent installation, giving a new meaning to Anselm Kiefer's masterpiece. In fact, the canvases recall some themes already present in The Seven Heavenly Palaces - the great architectural constructions of the past as an attempt by man to ascend to the divine and the constellations represented through astronomical numbering - and also add some central reflections in the artist's poetics, such as the relationship between man and nature, references to the history of Western thought and philosophy.
