Shooting into the Corner. 2008-2009
Starting this friday there will be a solo exhibition by Anish Kapoor at Martin-Gropius Bau. The exhibition, will feature about 70 works spanning the artist’s diverse range of mediums including stone, steel, glass, wax, PVC skins, and high-tech material. In his work Kapoor crosses the line between painting and sculpture and his sculptures often change in the progress of the exhibition. They’re being cut, scraped or hurled - changing every day. And this change often lies in the sculpture itself e.g in Shooting into the Corner. 2008-2009 where pieces of wax are being shot into the corner once an hour. Kapoor’s work seems to be perfection and chaos at the same time. Monumental and intimate. While the use of strong red has a strong visual impact in white cube museums it’s primarily a reminiscence of India, where Kapoor was born in 1954.
As I’ve seen Kapoor’s impressive sculptures with an focus on wax in Vienna years ago, I am now very much looking forward to the installations and objects he’s going to present at Gropius Bau. And as he always involves space, Kapoor specifically designed pieces for the venue.
