Item description for Anish Kapoor: To Darkness: Svayambh by Rainer Crone & Alexandra Von Stosch...
This new book on the art of world-renowned sculptor Anish Kapoor examines his latest sculpture in the context of his work as a whole.
Since the 1970s Anish Kapoor has been creating sculptures and installations from a variety of materials such as wood, stone, metal, wax, and resin. His use of bright pigments and archetypal forms enables his audience to appreciate these works on a variety of levels. This volume presents Kapoor s sculptures from the last thirty years, focusing specifically on his recent installation, Svayambh ( self-creation in Sanskrit), in which a giant block of red Vaseline moves imperceptibly between rooms in the gallery, leaving behind traces of color on the walls. The text analyzes in depth many of Kapoor s major works and places them in their historical and philosophical context, offering new ways of understanding both Kapoor s work and contemporary sculpture.
