One of the highlights, Svayambh, has the appearance of a vast mass of wax that moves almost imperceptibly on sunken rails leaving a residue in its wake.

Kapoor's work, Shooting into the Corner (2009), features a cannon that shoot projectiles of red wax into a corner at regular intervals. The wax will build and take on new forms as the show continues.

His early pigment sculptures - such White sand, Red millet, Many Flowers (1982) - secured Kapoor's early reputation at home and abroad.
