SOLO EXHIBITION ROPAC PANTIN
Preview, 1 March 2015, 2 - 6pm
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is delighted to host SECOND BODY - a major exhibition of sculptures by Antony Gormley in the vast halls of the gallery space in Pantin. The exhibition continues the artist's investigation of body and space, interrogating the body as place and architecture as the primary conditioner of our experience of space. Antony Gormley fully exploits the scale and volumes of the former foundry sheds that now form the gallery, catalysing our experience of space and time through works that either constitute or are arranged as "fields".
In a recent statement, the artist describes being "increasingly interested in the tropes of framing, containing and constructing being freed from architecture's shelter function… to make a psychological architecture that allows surface and mass, light and dark, open and closed volumes free play in works that become places for an adventure in real time."
