Here is a fascinating installation put together by highly coveted artist Anish Kapoor at the Gladstone Gallery in New York. The sculptor has developed a collection of towers formed from concrete which seem to spill from some unknown source down to the earth. The smooth and messy shapes are typical of Kapoor’s aesthetic, his investigation of the refined and unhinged is made present in each three-dimensional form. The organic works explore the changing nature of their material as the initial imaginings of the shapes by the artist have since turned to collapsed and unfolding objects.
