Art Review - Anish Kapoor - At the Guggenheim, Inside, Outside, All Around the Thing -
The Anish Kapoor exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum consists of just one work, but it’s a doozy. Viewable only from three partial perspectives, “Memory” is an enormous egg-shaped volume of Cor-Ten steel, wedged into a boxy side gallery like a dirigible that drifted off course and got stuck.

Anish Kapoor: Memory / Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin / Interview
Commissioned by the Deutsche Guggenheim, Anish Kapoor created a site-specific work. The sculpture, titled “Memory”, is a 24 ton Cor-Ten steel tank, that sits tightly within the Deutsche Guggenheim’s gallery space. Thus, the viewer has two distinct views of the work. In addition to that, a staircase leading down from the Deutsche Guggenheim’s store offers a view into Memory’s dark, cavernous interior through a two-meter square aperture window. By this, the viewer has three perspectives he has to put together again in his memory. Anish Kapoor was born in 1954 in Mumbai, India. He lives and works in London. The exhibition has been curated by Sandhini Poddar. The show runs until February 1, 2009. It will travel to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York at a date to be announced. This video contains statements by the curator of the exhibition, Sandhini Poddar, and an interview with Anish Kapoor. Interview: Daniel Miller. Video: Lizza May David. Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin / Germany. November 28, 2008.
