Spanning 50 meters from end to end and 8 meters across at it’s widest parts, Anish Kapoor’s Dismemberment makes quite an impact. Constructed with a red PVC membrane stretched between the two giant steel ellipses, Kapoor likens the surface to flayed skin and comments, “I want to make body into sky”. On a practical note, Kapoor needed to create a piece that was both ‘freestanding and capable of surviving a constant arm-wrestle with the sky and the mercurial weather conditions’. He succeeded.
