Antony Gormley: Horizon Field Hamburg

Snoeck, June 2012


This exhibition catalog documents Antony Gormley's installation Horizon Field Hamburg, designed for the large Deichtorhalle at Documenta 2012, in which a vast, black, reflective structure floats 25 feet above the floor. The suspended, slightly oscillating platform exploits the structural potential and architectural context of the building. Horizontal Field Hamburg elicits an experience of re-orientation and reconnection mediated through vibration, sound, and reflection by functioning as a horizontal painting stretched taut in space. The viewer becomes a figure in an undefined, free-floating spatio-temporal matrix. This publication includes essays by Iaian Boyd-Whyte, Stephen Levinson and Dirk Luckow.
