Turn opens at the Dhaka Art Summit
At DAS 2023, Antony Gormley has collaborated with a team of Bangladeshi artisans to create Turn (2023), a ‘drawing in space’ made from 2.5 km of bundled bamboo. An explosion of line, Turn invites viewers to transform its sinuous materiality into movement as they duck and twist through this looping entanglement. Temporary in nature, this dynamic field of energy evokes the shapeshifting journey of bamboo in Bangladesh – and will be recycled into other forms after the Summit.
