Antony Gormley

FIRMAMENT AND OTHER FORMS, MIDDELHEIM MUSEUM, ANTWERP, BELGIUM, 2013

24 February - 5 May 2013

Antony Gormley follows Thomas Schütte as guest exhibitor in the new semi-open exhibition pavilion Het Huis (The House), built by Robbrecht and Daem for the renovated Middelheim Museum.

The exhibition, FIRMAMENT AND OTHER FORMS will question the human body's attachment to architecture. All the works on view are based on the 'bubble-matrix'; a random, but consistent geometry found in nature which also forms the structural syntax of  FIRMAMENT III - a major work which has gifted to the Museum with the help of Xavier Hufkens Gallery.
