About The Work

Taking a cue from current events, British artist Anish Kapoor furthered his formal exploration of the void in this work. Using the field provided by a world atlas opened to pages displaying the Middle East, Kapoor incised and painted geometric shapes on both recto and verso. Negative space, for instance, is created by a red circle carved out on the left and a red square carved out on the right. These extend through the entire depth of the book and leave nations demarcated and divided by cartographic abstractions. Each signed and numbered edition is displayed in a slipcase, with painted front and back cover and spine.
