LONDON.- Following a visit to RAF Scampton, home of the world famous aerobatic team “The Red Arrows”, an exciting collaboration has been announced between leading international artist Anish Kapoor and the Red Arrows on a future project which will combine art with aviation in a unique and innovative way. The project, announced by Artliner, will be realised for the Farnborough International Air Show 2016.

Anish Kapoor said: “I am looking forward to working with the celebrated RAF Red Arrows on this exciting and innovative project which will come to fruition during the 2016 Farnborough Air Show".

Founder of Artliner, Tatiana Ojjeh, said: “Through my work on the Wind Tunnel Project, I have been thinking about artists who might work well within the aviation context and after many discussions, we knew Anish was the perfect choice. We are going to bring the worlds of aviation and the visuals arts together to make something extraordinary, something that has never happened before”

A Red Arrows spokesperson said: “We look forward to working closely with Anish Kapoor and Artliner to combine our expertise.”

Anish Kapoor is represented by the Lisson Gallery, London; Gladstone Gallery, New York; and Kamel Mennour, Paris.
