Anish Kapoor at the Met

 The more of Anish Kapoor's work we see, the more interested we become in his work. So we were delighted to find a magnificent one on our last visit to the Met.
 The Met hung one of Kapoor's reflective discs adjacent to one of El Anatsui's hangings. Good idea.
 We recently learned that El Anatsui never supervises the installation of his pieces -- he leaves it up to the institution. Nice job. (El Anatsui, Dusasa II, 2007. Found aluminum, copper wire and plastic discs)
 It was impossible to get close to the Kapoor. It always had a gaggle of admirers
taking pictures
and gazing at their own reflections.
