By FEDERICA LUSIARDI - January 1, 2017

Curated by Mario Codognato, the exhibition comprises a series of reliefs and paintings made up of jutting layers of red and white silicone and paint, as well as monumental architectural sculptures, including the extraordinary Sectional Body Preparing for Monadic Singularity, displayed last year in the park of the Palace of Versailles, and proposed here at the MACRO in a dialogue with the museum’s architecture.
Archetypal, intimate, imposing and dialectic, Kapoor’s work presents, confronts and explores the conditions of matter, the dynamics of perception and the power of metaphor.
