Title: Anish Kapoor

Publisher: Walther König Mai 2013

Publication Date: 2013

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu


Neuware - Anish Kapoor's sculptures represent an important position in contemporary art. Born in Bombay in 1954 and living in London since the early 1970s, he combines Western and Eastern influences to create special work. He became famous with large-scale sculptures in public spaces, most recently on the occasion of the Olympic games in London in 2012. His multi-award-winning work (1991 Turner prize) has been exhibited worldwide since his first solo exhibition in 1980. The monograph gives a concentrated overview of his diverse oeuvre of the last 40 years, from the pigment works to the mirror works and large polished sculptures. In the main section, the temporary, site-related works in the Martin-Gropius-Bau, such as the '.' in the spectacular, central hall, are documented in sketches, models and installation photos. These new works, which impressively frame the architecture of the Martin-Gropius-Bau, are elaborately illustrated and elucidated. 368 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783863353285

Synopsis: Among the most acclaimed sculptors of his generation, Anish Kapoor (born 1954) has captured the popular imagination with his biomorphic, optically baffling public sculptures such as the famous Cloud Gate in Chicagos Millennium Park and Sky Mirror at the Rockefeller Center in New York. The ambition of Kapoors imagination compels him to reach for the most sensational effects and scales in his work; as he once told an interviewer, his inspirations are the mythical wonders of the world, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Tower of Babel. Published on the occasion of Kapoors exhibition at Martin-Gropius Bau in Berlin, this ample volume is illustrated with works spanning the length of Kapoors career. It also includes many new works created for the exhibition, as well as pictures of the monumental installation being conceived for the Martin-Gropius Baus central atrium.
