Lot Essay

"The idea is 'to make an object which is not an object, to make a hole in the space, to make something which actually does not exist.' Even more, the extraordinary appearance, loved and feared, of a piece of void, at once finite and infinite, reactivates the symbolic contact between inside and outside, earth and heaven, male and female, active and passive, conceptual and physical, thus renewing the process of knowing." (G. Celant, also quoting the artist, in: 'Anish Kapoor', Milan 1996, p. 30.)
