"In a distinguished career spanning thirty years, Anish Kapoor has created an ambitious vocabulary of form manifested in sculptural installation and site-specific works. Using materials as wide-ranging as stone, steel, raw pigment, wax and resin, Kapoor confronts his viewer with both the depths of imagined space and the play of surface illusion. This volume surveys the totality of Kapoor's work, with specific focus on his recent installation Svayambh ('self-creation' in Sanskrit), in which a huge block of red wax travels slowly through the museum space, leaving traces of its passage on walls and doorways. The authors provide in-depth analyses of many of Kapoor's major works, placing them in historical and philosophical context, and offering new insights both into Kapoor's work and the wider context of contemporary sculpture."--BOOK JACKET.
