this exhibition surveys kapoor’s career to date showcasing new and previously unseen works, including early pigment sculptures, mirror-polished stainless-steel sculptures and cement sculptures on display for the first time. the exhibition also includes highlights such as the monumental work svayambh, the title of which comes from a sanskrit word meaning ‘self-generated’. emblematic of kapoor’s interest in works of sculpture that actively participate in their own creation, svayambh moves slowly through the galleries across the entire breadth of burlington house.
