The cavity carved out of this sandstone block is coated with a blue pigment. The physical presence of the anthropomorphic stone is combined with the visual experience of immersion into an apparently infinite chasm of blue. One of Britain’s best-known artists, Kapoor has described his interest in cavities and voids in terms of a ‘sensual uncertainty’, gaining access to an unstable series of forces which are both external and internal, physical and unconscious.
