Descriptions 

Anish Kapoor released illy collection cup as part of installation "Ascension" on the 54th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. Exploring the transience of smoke, the work creates a tangible, rising column of the traditionally immaterial substance. Previously exhibited in gallery spaces in San Giminiano (Italy), in Sao Paolo and Rio de Janiero (Brazil), and in Beijing (China), the work takes on new meaning in the spiritual context of Venice's basilica Di San Giorgio.

Ascension (54ème biennale de Venise) by dalbera

'In my work", Anish Kapoor said," what is and what seems to be often become blurred. In ascension, for example, what interests me is the idea of immateriality becoming an object, which is exactly what happens in ascension: the smoke becomes a column. Also present in this work is the idea of Moses following a column of smoke, a column of light, in the desert..."

The column rises from a circular base placed at the intersection of the basilica's transept and nave, with four surrounding pillars lined with fans to elevate the smoke. Though ventilation from the church's doorways diffused the smoke, its dispersion of light made it still visible in the daytime.

The similar idea was used in design of illy cup: the saucer has a hole in the center to allow the user to place the dish over the cup – then voila, you have your own instant Anish Kapoor mini-sculpture! Anish Kapoor came up with a cup and saucer that could double as a dollhouse-sized version of his another known work : the inside of the cup and centerless saucer are coated in a shiny platinum finish, recalling his Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago (also nicknamed "The Bean" because of its shape).

As illy notes, "'What do I see when I look into a hole?' Anish Kapoor has played around with the illy cup and subverted its use: by placing the platinum saucer with the hole in the centre on the top, the flickering reflections become form and touch on themes such as doubt, ambivalence, error, mystery, surprise and the desire to understand."
