Svayambh (Royal Academy, London, 2009)
Anish Kapoor

“‘Svayambh’, Sanskrit for ‘self-generated,’ [is] a 40-ton block of blood-red wax, paint and vaseline that travels at a stately pace on a train track across five rooms. Too large to slip comfortably through the archways, it skins itself as it passes, depositing trails of crimson goo on walls, cornices, floors. Each journey takes 90 minutes – so slow that the movement is imperceptible, although the train, like time and ageing, never stops, waiting for no man. During the course of the show, it will splatter and coat its five galleries, churning archways into tunnels scarred with blood-like coagulations: a painted battleground.” (x)
