Reference 5 (Installation): Hive by Anish Kapoor

  • Confronts the viewer with two seemingly contrasting images:

- one an internal space/cave

- an object in space

  • Juxtaposition

  • Inside / Outside

  • Presented with this cavelike form you do not completely understand and cannot enter, subsequently driven around the object to explore its form - the form makes a transition from a plane to a volume

  • Element of surprise

  • The finish of the object is an orange pigment which you cannot touch - emphasising the restraint from the desire to climb into the cave
