Rushdie's Next

Salman Rushdie is set to collaborate with celebrated sculptor Anish Kapoor, says a report in The Independent: "Their as-yet unnamed work, which will feature in Kapoor's forthcoming exhibition at the Lisson Gallery, consists of 'two bronze boxes conjoined with red wax'." Inscribed around the outside will be the first two paragraphs of a text written by Rushdie, says the report, quoting the writer: "I've responded very strongly to the sensuality of Anish's forms and to his ability to remain lyrical even when he works on an immense scale."

Two boxes stuck together with wax? Yes, very lyrical.
