Anish Kapoor – Unseen

Anish Kapoor (b. 1954) is one of the most influential artists of our time. Over the past four decades, the Indian-British artist has created a body of ground- breaking works out of materials such as wax, stone, pigment and polished stainless steel. Kapoor’s monumental works simultaneously envelop and over- whelm the observer. At the same time, the artist examines what we cannot see, as, for example, through his iconic void works that distort the exhibition spaces and the architecture in which they are embedded.

This book was published in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Anish Kapoor – Unseen’ at the ARKEN Museum of Contemporary Art. Lavishly illustrated, it offers a unique insight into how the artist’s use of materials, surfaces and colours has evolved and been refined from the early years of his career to the present. Four essays and an interview with Anish Kapoor delve into an array of poetic, philosophical and existential questions prompted by Kapoor’s seductive and sometimes disturbing works.
