‘intersection’, 2012 by anish kapoor showing at lisson gallery

anish kapoor lisson gallery, london on now through november 10th, 2012

lisson gallery in london presents the latest work of anish kapoor – marking 30 years of collaboration between lisson and the renowned artist. the collection of artworks fill both the gallery’s spaces on bell street – providing a comprehensive exhibition of kapoor’s most recent creations. kapoor is well known for work that spans large-scale, brightly colored or biomorphic installations which caught the attention of the contemporary art world in the 1980s.

the lisson gallery exhibition reveals elements of these earlier concepts but also for the first time a new compendium of earth works in varied compositions. these manifest themselves as table sculptures flaunting tiny landscapes, wall and floor pieces echoing rock and coral, and works on canvas coated with gritty pigments mined from the earth. these are complemented by kapoor’s first prominent concrete artwork made using a readymade object; and a room especially created to prompt a strong sensation of unease from its audience. gracing lisson’s sculpture yard is ‘intersection’ – a mammoth sculpture fabricated from corten steel to complete a coherent body of works adeptly embodying kapoor’s evolving explorations to date.
