If you’re in Paris, you have to stop by the Grand Palais. The reason? The imposing inflatable red sculpture by British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor that integrates the fourth edition of Monumenta. The work is called "Leviathan."

* Of strong political vein, the creation is 35 meters high and 120 meters long. Inside, the artist recreates the surroundings of a living organism, in a kind of impressive placenta. On the outside, on the other hand, the visitor is faced with polished, rounded forms that characterize the work of Kapoor, who dedicated the work to Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, detained by Beijing authorities.

* But hurry, Culturette. The last day of the exhibition is on Monday!
