Anish Kapoor’s Descension, a water vortex made by the famous artist Anish Kapoor, is an installation that is exclusive to Kochi Biennale as the artist has used a portion of Aspinwall to create an artificial vortex filled with water and diesel, confronting the visitor with a perpetual force that pulls him to the unknowable interior.

Kapoor (born in 1954 in Mumbai, India) lives and works in London, UK; he is one of 94 artists from 30 countries participating in the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014 in India, which ends March 29, 2015.
