Antony Gormley

July 4, 2009

Antony Gormley

According to the artist’s website:

FIRMAMENT, the ancient name for the night sky, brings to mind an assembled matrix of volumes that map a celestial constellation, while also implying the form of a body lost within it. Literally a drawing in space, the non regular polygonal structure of FIRMAMENT looms over the viewer, giving a sense of both claustrophobia and landscape, testing our experience of space.

FIRMAMENT has been engineered as part of a collaboration between Antony Gormley and Tristan Simmonds.
