Anish Kapoor, one of the most influential artists of his generation, presents a major exhibition of new work at Lisson Gallery London. The exhibition unveils a new series of sculptures covered in a permeable and translucent mesh, simultaneously wrapping and revealing the inner forms that are protruding and bursting forward into outer space. The geological, corporeal shapes beneath this skin suggest natural processes being held at bay, albeit only by a gossamer-thin membrane, ready to explode.
These new works relate to a series that Kapoor has been working on for many years but showing only for the last two, including a triptych of paintings first exhibited at Lisson Gallery in 2015 which then travelled to the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam in 2016 and MACRO, Rome in 2017. The new exhibition at Lisson Gallery will also include a number of significant works on paper made over the past six years.
Kapoor has been represented by Lisson Gallery since 1982. This will be his sixteenth exhibition at the gallery, which this year celebrates 50 years of working with artists and making exhibitions.
In January, Anish Kapoor was awarded the 2017 Genesis Prize and pledged to give the $1m prize money to help refugees.
