antony gormley:   firmament and other formsmiddleheim 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 and transformation.
