"Svayambh"
by sabine7 / November 19, 2007
Some of Anish Kapoor’s recent work includes the Svayambh installation at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes and Munich’s Haus der Kunst where a huge beet red sculpture flows from one gallery to another, almost like a train car sliding through on matching red tracks. The material, which coats the doorways, is a mix of wax, paint and Vaseline, adding to the impression that the car-like structure has passed through. The name of the sculpture comes from Sanskrit and means self-generated, although there is an untitled sculpture of similar material and colour in Nantes as well.
