Exhibition: Antony Gormley: Stand

Antony Gormley: STAND
A sculpture installation on the East Terrace

Perched high on the Museum’s Rocky steps, ten cast-iron ”blockwork” sculptures by British artist Antony Gormley bring art outside, releasing it into the city’s shared space. In these metal bodies, each over ten feet tall, Gormley has replaced anatomy with the language of architecture, using cantilevers, propping, and pier-and-lintel construction, the interplay of masses creating the balance of form and feeling. These are sculptures, not statues—less heroic or idealized, more material and real. STAND offers an opportunity to reflect on our status as urban animals, our common ground with the artworks, and how context influences our thinking.
