The principal theme of the exhibition revolves around deeper concepts such as the inner world, a matter that is usually present in Kapoor’s work. “As artists, we have no choice but to look into the darkness. If Plato in the myth of the cave tells of how men evolve by discovering light, Freud instead tells us to look into the depth of the cave, where there is darkness. Darkness, the great intuition of the Viennese psychoanalyst, is the place that the artist must explore today more than ever,” states the artist. And, as Giulio Manieri Elia, the Accademia’s Director mentions, Kapoor’s thorough work creates a stimulating dialogue with Venetian Renaissance master’s art, such as Tintoretto or Bellini, represented in the museum.
