Anish Kapoor "The Origin of the World"

2004

The whole exhibition space is the work, with a gigantic void in a slope that rises up from the floor. The void appears endless, broadening into its depth, and seems to encroach upon the observer, controverting conventional concepts of space. Amusing at the sensory level, this work also has a philosophical domain, inducing observers to think about how they relate to things and about existence itself.
