HORIZON FIELD, VORARLBERG, AUSTRIA, 2010

31 July 2010 - 15 July 2012

HORIZON FIELD was the first art project of its kind erected in the mountains and the largest landscape intervention in Austria to date. The installation consisted of 100 life-size, solid cast iron figures of the human body spread over an area of 150 square kilometers in the communities of Mellau, Schoppernau, Schröcken, Warth, Mittelberg, Lech, Klösterle, and Dalaas forminga horizontal line at 2,039 meters above sea level.

Speaking on the work, Gormley has said:

'HORIZON FIELD asks: Where does the human project fit within the evolution of life on this planet? The works form a field in which living bodies and active minds are involved in measuring the space and distance through the field of these static iron bodies, and of course both skiers and hikers will be part of this. This installation recognises the deep connection between social and geological territory; between landscape and memory.'
