Antony Gormley: National Gallery Exhibition
6 August, 2021 @ 7:30 am - 30 October, 2022 @ 7:00 pm
Antony Gormley is renowned for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that explore the relationship between the human body and space. Often casting his own body as a base, he develops his works using a variety of forms and materials. They provoke questions about how humans relate to nature and the cosmos.
Gormley’s new commission at the Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Gallery, Horizon Field Singapore (2021), invites visitors to walk through a matrix of aluminium rings. In addition, they can co-create the experience by stepping through the rings.
This new-site specific installation is complemented by three sculptures placed around the Gallery. They present defining aspects of Gormley’s extensive study of the human body: Close V, Sense and Ferment. Also, they provide a wider context for Horizon Field Singapore, in which our own bodies become part of the work. Then, we can reimagine our own relationship with our environment.
