Lisson Gallery

Now Screening | 'Under the Skin – In conversation with Anish Kapoor'

31 May 2020

From 1 – 7 June, Lisson Gallery's Spotlight Screenings programme features the previously unseen film by Martina Margaux Cozzi, Under the Skin – in conversation with Anish Kapoor. The screening continues the gallery's second season of Spotlight films themed around ‘Documents/history/truth’, showcasing documentary-form films by and about our artists.

Among discussion of material, colour, psychology and the role of the viewer, Kapoor delves into the genesis behind his work: “It starts with an idea about skin. The skin defines the touch of the object to the rest of the world – to the so-called outside. Everything else is interior.” This film, directed by Cozzi, mixes an experimental approach to the traditional artist interview and presents a new director’s cut excerpted from the original, also unreleased film, which includes footage of Kapoor’s studio in preparation for a major show at the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma (MACRO) in Rome in 2016.
