The Talks interview


Kapoor gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses what art is about, his work being introspective, and what made him want to be an artist.

I called it that in a way of course on purpose because it’s the myth of the flaying of the man Marsyas by Apollo. The object itself, this stretched form, is referring to an interior. It’s like a stretched skin.
