Shooting into the Corner
- Caroline Kurze
‘Shooting into the Corner’ consists of a cannon developed by artist Anish Kapoor together with a team of engineers. A pneumatic compressor shoots 11-kilogram balls of wax at 20-minute intervals into the corner across the room; all in all, 20 tons of wax were ‘fired away’ throughout the exhibition run in 2009. Loud aggression on the one hand and silent growth on the other give the piece tension, sensuality, and compelling power. Go check out his website for more of Kapoor’s faszinating work.
