Antony Gormley

OBJECT ON VIEW AT NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY, LONDON

On 7 September 2016 as part of Antony Gormley - OBJECT, his first display at the National Portrait Gallery, a cast-iron sculpture made from the artist's body will be suspended from the ceiling of the Main Hall.
 
OBJECT (1999) will occupy a position of maximum exposure, being visible from the ground floor and in passing as the visitor ascends the escalator to the Gallery's top floor. 

The installation is accompanied on October 5 by the display of FALL 1999, a selection of drawings shown in the Gallery's first floor Balcony within sight of the sculpture. Like the sculpture, these compelling works present a solitary figure occupying a void.
