He won the Duemila Award for Best young Artist at the Venice Biennale in 1990, the Turner Prize in the UK in 1991 and the Medal of Honour at the London institution in 1997. Kapoor is one of those artists who raises alchemy questions. He is ahead of contradictory concepts, creating works that force us to go beyond appearances and seek existence. He thus makes us reflect on the potential influence of matter and its energy, and hence the metaphor of the whole universe.
