Celebrated for his gigantic, stainless steel Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago's Millennium Park, Anish Kapoor is changing the cultural environment with his public works.The Indian-born, London-based artist represented Britain at the 1990 Venice Biennale and took home the 1991 Turner Prize with his monochromatic, pigment-covered, abstract forms. Since then, he's carved mysterious cavities in stone, made massive wax installations, and fabricated shiny concave disks, like the enormous Sky Mirror in New York's Rockefeller Center, that dynamically reflect theirsurroundings.
Kapoor's interest in the tension between form and formlessness, texture and colour, volume and the void, finds added context in the deconstructivist architecture of Dismemberment. This massive installation has been built in New Zealand on the private art park known as The Farm and owned by New Zealand businessman and art patronAlan Gibbs. The structure is made of PVC and steel.
