REGEN PROJECT / CURRENT EXHIBITION Anish Kapoor _ Solo Show | January 31 – March 7, 2015

Anish Kapoor | Solo Show

9f5e968263936882ac09597c03fae2cfRegen Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by the London-based artist Anish Kapoor. One of the most influential sculptors of his generation, Kapoor’s work combines the formal concerns of minimalism with concerns for the material and psychical nature of both the object and the self.

Known primarily for his large site-specific installations and objects that test the phenomenology of space, this exhibition features significant new work that pushes his use of materials into exciting new territories. Kapoor has shown with Regen Projects since 1992 and this marks the artist’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery.

In contrast to their raw, earthly matter, a series of highly polished stainless steel sculptures reflect and refract an illusion of the world onto their mirrored surfaces and confound the viewers’ relationship to the space around them.

Anish Kapoor (b. 1954 Bombay, India) lives and works in London, England.
