FAI SPAZIO, PRENDI POSTO, POGGIBONSI (PART OF ARTE ‘ALL ARTE 9), ITALY, 2004 - 2005

17 September 2004 - 06 January 2005

FAI SPAZIO, PRENDI POSTO - MAKING SPACE, TAKING PLACE was a project by Antony Gormley and Associazione Arte Continua, curated by Archille Bonito Oliva and James Putman as part of Arte all'Arte 9 in Poggibonsi. Seven cast iron body forms of individuals from Poggibonsi were placed in and around the city. Originally this was for the duration of the exhibition, but the works became a permanent installation. MAKING SPACE, TAKING PLACE proposes that art could be found anywhere and represent anyone, attempting to reinforce the intuition that we are the makers of a shared material world, which in turn makes us.
