antony gormley: firmament and other forms
middleheim museum, antwerp
on from the 24th february through to 5th may, 2013
the newly renovated middelheim museum in antwerp unveils a new addition to its permanent collection by antony gormley and exhibits a series
of new sculptures to be shown publicly for the first time in het huis. from the 24th of february until the 5th may 2013, a series of his 'polyhedra'
sculptures that have never previously been exhibited in this constellation will be on show. the works showcases the iconic irregular three dimensional
cuboid structures referencing human-shaped forms - often fabricated from his signature material - cast iron. these pieces, as with so much of gormley’s oeuvre,
reveal the artist revitalizing the art of figurative sculpture through his investigation of the body - often his own - as the meeting point of memory
