This will be the first major presentation of Antony Gormley’s work in China. At its core is Critical Mass II (1995), an installation of 60 life-size cast iron bodyforms. This seminal work has been widely exhibited in Europe, but this will be its first showing in Asia. Some of the bodyforms are installed in a linear progression recalling the ‘ascent of man’. Some are suspended in arrested fall, others lie scattered across the space or form a jumbled pile. This multiple work celebrates the sculptural body as object and ground for feeling, and engages our deepest hopes and fears; our attraction to light as well as to darkness.
