Perspectives: Anish Kapoor

The “Perspectives” series of contemporary Asian art resumes with “S-Curve” (2006) by internationally renowned Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor. Consisting of two sixteen-foot lengths of polished steel that are gently curved to create a continuous convex and concave wall, the work recalls the exploration of form that Kapoor most famously presented in “Cloud Gate” in Chicago’s Millennium Park. At a height of seven feet and with highly reflective surfaces, “S-Curve” engages viewers in a powerful physical and visual experience within the Sackler Gallery. Known for his sublime approach to pure form, space, and materials since the early 1980s, Kapoor continues to examine spatial perception and the immateriality of the object through this work.
