The illusionist

By GREG COOK  |  June 6, 2008

I asked Kapoor about such inferences as we sat in the ICA’s dim theater, gazing out the big windows at Boston Harbor. “Involuted form seems to say — you know, to use a Platonic metaphor — we’re not looking from the cave out to that light, which is marvelous. We’re actually looking at the back of the cave, over there, to where it’s dark and dirty and dangerous and smelly and sexual and, you know, half-revealed. Back there I think is true mystery, is true human profundity. It’s where we come from, and it’s probably where we go.”
