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.
