Solo Booth, Galleria Continua At Frieze Masters
From 13 - 17 October 2021, Galleria Continua will present a solo presentation by Antony Gormley at Frieze Masters.
The group of important early works date from 1978 - 1996. At the centre of the display is Cave, 1986;
‘(Cave) is such a foundational work for everything that happened afterwards. It is so close to the beginning of my thinking about how to introduce the body into sculpture in a completely radical way. Cave is non-representational, and so absolutely states this confrontation with otherness - whether a confrontation with another person whose interiority you can only imagine and you cannot know, or a confrontation with an object that exists outside mortal time and through which you become very aware of your own freedom.’ Antony Gormley, 2021.
