Anselm Kiefer, Seven Heavenly Palaces (2004)
Site-specific installation for Hangar Bicocca, Milan.
For Kiefer, an important point of reference was the myth of creation in ancient jewish mystical literature describing man’s part in god’s word. Yet the artist has taken other points of reference into consideration in his work. The towers […] represent the metaphysical principles corresponding to the various levels of human participation in the divine. They are also associated with the emotional situations that characterize the daily life of every individual and that can lend it order and meaning.(http://www.designboom.com/contemporary/kiefer.html)
