Catalogue Note

"With this work, the artist deploys his iconic use of elemental matter, in this case a massive slab of Italian alabaster, to address signature themes of duality—such as absence versus presence, spirit versus body, invisible versus visible, and illusory versus tangible—as well as the physical opposition between the convex and the concave. With the void in particular, Kapoor returns to one of the oldest and most universal artistic subjects: the womb as the nexus of creation and regeneration." 

Mieshe Shih, "Anish Kapoor," Guggenheim Online, 2010
