At the Hub of East and West: Anish Kapoor's Transcultural Sculpture
MetadataShow full item record
As a piece that may be simultaneously interpreted as a representation of the cosmic Hindu “mother” and positioned in the tradition of the Abstract Expressionist "sublime," Anish Kapoor’s sculpture "At the Hub of Things" consummates these temporally and geographically distinct cultural ideologies. The relation between the viewer and the sculpture is an analogy to the dialectic between the West as the gazing subject and the East as the object being gazed at, ultimately subverting this binaristic power structure entirely.
