The Seven Celestial Palaces

Yesterday I had a chance to see the Hangar Bicocca space in Milan, where Anselm Kiefer's "The Seven Celestial Palaces" are permanently installed. I had see drawings of the poject when it laucnched last year, but nothing could really describe this amazing space. The "palaces" are casts of container parts stacked precariously one on top of the other. So precariously in fact that the area is off-limits to people as the towering structures could really fall any minute.
