APERTURE, XAVIER HUFKENS, BRUSSELS, BELGIUM
An exhibition of new work by Antony Gormley opens at Galerie Xavier Hufkens, Brussels on 17 September 2009. The main room of the gallery will be occupied by a new work, FIRMAMENT III. The room will be entirely filled with the a polyhedral space-frame into which the body of the viewer is invited to wander. Completely negating the orthogonal geometries of regular architecture, this aggregate surrounds a void: a human-shaped cave more than ten times life size. A catalogue will accompany the exhibition including a text by the British physicist and cosmologist Roger Penrose.
