The exhibition by the Turner Prize-
On display will be Kapoor’s sensual and intriguing sculptures which he created using a range of materials including pigment, stone, and polished stainless steel.
The show has been selected by the artist and includes works such as White Sand, Red Millet, Many Flowers (1982) which demonstrates Kapoor’s early interest in applying raw pigment to a range of organic forms.
Alongside this, the optically illusionary Untitled (1995) is a highly polished stainless steel void embedded into the wall that draws the viewer into a seemingly bottomless reflection and is representative of the mirrored forms that have made Kapoor a household name.

The show here assembles major pieces from throughout his career drawn from public collections in the UK and is a testament to the richness and vibrancy of museum collections in this country.”
