Anish Kapoor: Drawings (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This work features an essay by Jeremy Lewison. Drawing and sculpture have always been linked in Anish Kapoor's practice, but they are also quite separate activities that require different approaches. In the 1980s and early 1990s, Kapoor made a body of works on paper most of which had an overtly symbolic content. Images of caves, mountains, orifices, vaginal clefts, testicles, erect male members and ovaries populated the works on paper shown in his 1991 Tate Gallery exhibition. For a short time after he continued to make drawings in the same vein, these works acting as sounding boards for his sculptural works that more or less explored the same themes. By the late 1990s he reassessed his ambitions as a draughtsman and began to make works on paper that eschewed the concrete in favour of a more abstract approach. "I felt more and more the need to move away from the narrative," Kapoor explained. This extensive monograph presents, for the first time, those works produced on paper in the late 1990s.
