Anish Kapoor

If you aint been here already get your arses down! It is a MUST SEE EXHIBITION! It ends on Dec 11th so not long left, just thought I would remind you lot who havent been already!

The Royal Academy of Arts presents a major solo exhibition of the work of the internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor, winner of the 1991 Turner Prize and one of the most influential and pioneering sculptors of his generation.

The exhibition surveys Kapoor’s career to date showcasing a number of new and previously unseen works, including a select group of Kapoor’s early pigment sculptures, beguiling mirror-polished stainless-steel sculptures and cement sculptures on display for the first time. The exhibition also includes highlights such as the monumental work Svayambh, the title of which comes from a Sanskrit word meaning ‘self-generated’. Emblematic of Kapoor’s interest in works of sculpture that actively participate in their own creation, Svayambh moves slowly through the galleries across the entire breadth of Burlington House.
