Anish Kapoor: Works, Thoughts, Experiments / Serralves, Porto, 2018
João Ribas, Christopher Bollas, Suzanne Kotter
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Anish Kapoor: Works, Thoughts, Experiments at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and the Serralves Park (on show from 7 July 2018 to 27 January 2019). The book brings together the largest collection of images from the artist’s studio ever published and installation views of the works exhibited in the Gardens of Serralves, including a new monumental outdoor work created for the show.
Working backward from the present day to the very beginning of Kapoor’s artistic practise in 1976, the book uncovers through its many returns the unique aesthetic form of Kapoor’s work. These repetitions and relationships between past and present works locate the history of Kapoor’s practise and highlight the intensity and breadth of his thinking of his work. This book allows us the privilege to witness these forms emerge in the private realm of the artist’s studio.
