Indian artist's house in London occupied by protesters
London, June 24 : A house in London owned by Indian-origin artist Anish Kapoor, who designed the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower for the Olympics, was Friday occupied by a group of protesters to hold an art event for a day, The Guardian reported.
The group that calls itself Bread and Circuses said it had "liberated" the part-derelict five-storey house on Lincoln Inn's Fields in central London.
The name of the group is a reference to its argument that the Olympics are a means of distracting people from pressing economic and social issues, the daily said.
The group said the house has been left empty since Kapoor bought it in 2009.
Kapoor is listed as the director of a company called 1-2 Lincoln's Inn Fields Ltd, the address of the property, which was formed in 2009.
The artist's 22.7-million-pound ArcelorMittal Orbit tower -- a 115-metre-tall sculpture and observation platform -- at the Olympic Park in east London, was mostly funded by Indian-origin steel billionaire Lakshmi Mittal.
