Antony Gormley

STATION, 2013 - 2015

Like many of the artist's recent body sculptures, the STATIONS use the syntax of architecture to translate body mass into the equivalent of a high-rise tower. In much the same way that the skeleton of a building is composed of columns and floors, here, the body is intersected by clear horizontal divisions and vertical pillars, the dimensions of which vary from 5 to 20 millimetres thick. Although architecture aims to produce a stable world, these works suggest vulnerability and potential instability.
