Published to accompany the major presentation of Anish Kapoor's work at the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice in 2022, this comprehensive monograph spans the entire breadth of his oeuvre, examining the development of his visual language from his spare, monochromatic sculptures that evoke sublimity to his more recent expressionistic sculptures and paintings that call to mind dispersed bodies.
In addition to presenting key moments in Kapoor's career, this volume also includes Kapoor's newest works, including those he created in the world's blackest material, Vantablack – the use of which Kapoor controversially gained exclusive rights to – exhibited publicly for the first time at the Gallerie dell'Accademia.

Meet Anish Kapoor Widely considered one of the most influential sculptors working today, Anish Kapoor has long explored the liminal space occupied by the object, drawing out themes of presence and absence, emptiness and fullness. Among his most famous works is Descent into Limbo from 1992, which creates a frightening black void in the floor of the gallery space. In 2022, Kapoor became the first British artist to exhibit at the Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice's highly reputed gallery of Old Masters.
