On the occasion of the exhibition GROUND, on Saturday 24 September Antony Gormley will be at museum Voorlinden for an exclusive Artist Talk, Q&A and book signing! Gormley will talk about his artistic development, how his work is created and why his work is about our existence.
The British artist is renowned worldwide for his sculptures, installations and public works that explore the relationship between the human body and the space around us. The major retrospective exhibition GROUND brings together work spanning Gormley’s career, from his early lead sculptures from the 1980s to recent large-scale installations, and can be seen until 25 September 2022.
Gormley approaches the age-old subject of the human body in his own unique, yet universal and philosophical way, building on art history and conceptual sculpture of the 1960s and 1970s. GROUND is one of the most ambitious exhibitions in the museum’s history, the first to occupy both the museum and the estate of Voorlinden. ‘As a museum, we want to do everything we can to offer Antony Gormley the stage he deserves’, says director Suzanne Swarts.
