Anish Kapoor to Make Rare Appearance to Sign Copies of New Monograph
Anish Kapoor will sign books at the Phaidon Store on Piccadilly, December 11 from 18.00 – 19.00.
LONDON.- On Friday 11 December, the final day of the blockbuster exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, Anish Kapoor will make a rare appearance to sign copies of his new monograph published by Phaidon at the pop-up Phaidon Store on Piccadilly, 18.00 – 19.00. To secure a place in the queue, people can pre-order their book at Phaidon Store now while stocks last. The book is available at 20% discount, priced £47.96 (full price £59.95).

Covering more than thirty years of work and illustrated with hundreds of full-colour images, including sketches and technical diagrams from his most ambitious projects, Anish Kapoor also features an extensive chronology covering the artist's life in detail and illustrated with snapshots, sketches and ephemera, some never before published.

Born in Bombay and based in London since the 1970s, Anish Kapoor (b. 1954) has been a vital force in contemporary art for over three decades. His sculptures are hermetic but unmistakable, both for their striking abstract forms and for their distinctive use of materials, from the traditional (marble, bronze) to the high-tech (stainless steel, fibreglass). His work, in its pursuit of the sublime and the spiritual, updates an artistic lineage that spans from Abstract Expressionism to German Romantic painting and beyond. At the same time, his sustained exploration of the uncanny, centred on the morphology of the human body, gives his work its unique and timeless psychological depth.

Kapoor has received numerous awards and distinctions, including the Turner Prize in 1991 and a CBE in 2003. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions at major museums around the world, including Haus der Kunst in Munich, Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes and Tate Modern in London, as well as important international exhibitions, such as "Documenta 9" in Kassel, Expo ’92 in Seville and the 44th Venice Biennale, where he represented Great Britain. He is also responsible for some of the world’s best known public sculptures, including "Taratantara" (1999, Gateshead and Naples), "Sky Mirror" (2001, Nottingham, and 2006, New York) and "Cloud Gate" (2004, Chicago).
