'This exhibition is Kapoor’s first major museum show in East Asia, and includes his most important works dating from the early years of his career to the present. The Ground Gallery houses Kapoor’s acclaimed early pigment works, as well as his Void
works, large-scale monochromatic works and stainless-steel sculptures that cross the boundary between the material and the immaterial. Installed in the Black Box are works that embody the principle of the “auto-generated,” which transform the gallery into a vast space of creation and formation. The exhibition is the first to occupy the museum’s entire exhibition space including the outdoor sculpture garden, where his most recent major work Tall Tree
and the Eye
and iconic stainless steel sculptures are installed.' (from website
