This is a new retrospective monograph on the work of internationally renowned contemporary artist Anish Kapoor, winner of the 1991 Turner Prize and creator of "Monumenta 2011". One of the most highly acclaimed sculptors working today, Anish Kapoor enjoys immense popularity and has represented Britain at the Paris and Venice Biennales. His first solo exhibition in Paris in 1980 was followed by numerous others around the world, including Sky Mirror installed at Rockefeller Center in 2006. Kapoor is the fourth artist to create an original work for the immense Grand Palais in Paris. Photographs of this major new work, never before published, complete this monograph. At once metaphysical, profoundly poetic, and visually explosive, Kapoor's work evokes a visceral as well as meditative response. 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.
