In ‘Time Horizon’ at Houghton Hall, Antony Gormley distributes 100 life-size sculptures across 300 acres of the park. The cast iron sculptures, each weighing approximately 640kg and standing at an average of 191cm, are installed at the same datum level to create a single horizontal plane across the landscape. Some works are buried, allowing only a part of the head to be visible, while others are buried to the chest or knees according to the topography. Only occasionally do they stand on the existing surface. Around a quarter of the works are placed on concrete columns that vary from a few centimetres high to rising four meters off the ground.
