„The Beuysian kind of idea that material is mythological and then the so-called Minimal art idea that an object has its own reality: I think those two things come together for me.“ (Rainer Crone / Alexandra von Stosch, Anish Kapoor, Munich, Berlin, London, New York 2008, page 37)
Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors of his generation. Born in Bombay, he has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s. Kapoor sees his work as being engaged with deep-rooted metaphysical polarities; presence and absence, being and non-being, place and non-place, and the solid and the intangible. Throughout Kapoor‘s sculptures, his fascination with darkness and light is apparent; the translucent quality of the resin works, the absorbent nature of the pigment, the radiant glow of alabaster and the fluid reflections of stainless steel - as can be seen in the present work - and water. Through this interplay between form and light, Kapoor aspires to evoke sublime experiences, which address primal physical and psychological states. (Lisson Gallery, London)
