Anish Kapoor information

At Fabrica there are books and pamphlets about Anish Kapoor, his works and the themes he tackles in that work. These include the Tate's glossy guide to 'Marsyas', his sculpture that filled the Turbine Hall in the Tate Modern a few years ago. It shows and explains how it was constructed, with drawings and photo's of the maquettes, something I hadn't seen before. A major task made to look simple.

I also s
potted in the gallery assistants information pack this photocopy of Descent Into Limbo (1992), a sculpture Anish made for Documenta IX. It was constructed from concrete and stucco but I like the distortion that multiple duplication adds to what was once probably quite a crisp image. Nothing beats photocopying.
