Anish Kapoor – Flashback

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

Kapoor is an artist at the top of his game. ‘Flashback’ is a small exhibition, featuring only two works, but the two complement each other perfectly. The first is an early work entitled ‘White Sand, Red Millet, Many Flowers’ (1982), a collection of four pigment sculptures. These are at once natural in appearance and abstract, and seem so fragile that one could imagine a small gust of wind blowing them away. Juxtaposed against this is ‘Untitled’ (2010). At over 5 metres tall this giant blood-red “self-generating” wax sculpture couldn’t be more different from the former work and highlights the artistic development of Kapoor’s career. Be sure to head up to the balcony to appreciate the great view from above.
