Islamic Mirror (2008) by internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor is the first project in a new annual series of interventions organized by the Department of Culture and Tourism, of the Government of the Autonomous Region of Murcia, in the public space and curated by Rosa Martinez. The Islamic Mirror installation in the Sharq al-Andalus Hall at the Santa Clara Museum propitiates an extraordinary conjunction of work and context that questions the cliched identification of public space with street space. After all, the public space also comprises places of historic condensation, which, protected and regulated by public institutions, are transformed into cultural heritage for individual and collective use, reflection and enjoyment.
