This new retrospective monograph, produced in direct collaboration with internationally renowned contemporary artist Anish Kapoor, is the most comprehensive to date.
Anish Kapoor, one of the most highly acclaimed sculptors working today, is winner of the 1991 Turner Prize and creator of Monumenta 2011. Kapoor enjoys immense popularity and has represented Britain at both the Paris Biennale and the Venice Biennale. His first solo exhibition in Paris in 1980 was been followed by numerous solo exhibitions in major venues around the world, including Sky Mirror installed at Rockefeller Center in New York in 2006. He is the fourth artist to be invited to the Grand Palais in Paris to create a unique and original work for the immense interior space. At once metaphysical, profoundly poetic, and visually explosive, Kapoor's work demands a visceral as well as meditative response.
Full color reproductions spanning more than three decades of artistic output are accompanied by an incisive interview with the artist, while Kapoor's work is situated and explored in a critical essay by a leading Harvard scholar.
