New work by British artist Antony Gormley. This is Gormleyâ€™s first solo exhibition in New York since 1991 and his first since joining Sean Kelly Gallery.
Gormleyâ€™s exhibition includes several freestanding sculptures, accompanied by an installation in the Main Gallery for which the entire space has been altered. Domain XLI will be installed on the parapet of the gallery overseeing those entering the space. In Gallery 1 is Capacitor II, made of more than 6,000 steel tubes from which more than 3,000 metal rods of different lengths protrude; it is readable in two distinct ways, either exploding outwards into space, or imploding as a black hole.
Antony Gormley’s work is included in the Tate Gallery, London, England; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England; the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Scotland; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland; the Hakone Open-air Museum, Tokyo, Japan; the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Japan; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; the Museum of Modern Art, Fort Worth, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.
Gormleyâ€™s “Asian Field” is on view until June 19, 2005, at the 3rd World Ceramic Biennale 2005 in Icheon, Korea. “Another Place,” will be installed in Crosby Sands, near Liverpool, England from May 2005 until November 2006. A new publication, “Making Space,” was published in January this year and will be available at the gallery.
