Antony Gormley

Antony Gormley Event Horizon

Antony Gormley is among the most celebrated sculptors working today. Over the last twenty-five years he has revitalized the human image in sculpture through a radical investigation of the body as a place of memory and transformation, using himself as subject, tool, and material. Since 1990 he has explored the collective body and the relationship between self and other in large-scale installations and projects. Gormley has participated in the prestigious Venice Biennale and Documenta 8, and was awarded theTurner Prize in 1994. The deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum recently acquired Gormley's Reflection II.This talk is made possible by a generous grant from the Grover Cronin Memorial Foundation, and is hosted by MassArt. All attendees will receive a free pass to visit deCordova.
