Representative sculptural works that probe the limits and potential of our relationship with the world.

This monograph features 30 fundamental works by acclaimed Indian artist Anish Kapoor (born 1954) from the 1980s to the present day, spanning practically the entirety of his long and distinguished career.
One of the most notable features of Kapoor’s works is the way they transcend their materiality. Pigment, stone, steel, wax and silicone are manipulated?carved, polished, saturated and molded?to the point of a dissolution of boundaries between the plastic and the immaterial. Color in Kapoor’s hands becomes an immersive phenomenon, containing its own spatial and illusive volume. Kapoor seeks estrangement, the erasure of ordinary references, in order to undermine the way that we are accustomed to see things and set them in a completely different perspective, creating works that act as catalysts of energy. This volume reveals the genesis of his artistic practice and investigates its language, providing new keys to its interpretation.
