Blind Light - Hayward Gallery (preview)
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
Blind Light, the first major London showing of the work of British sculptor Antony Gormley, is on display in the South Bank Centre’s Hayward Gallery until August 19, 2007.
The exhibition features a series of brand new monumental works specially conceived for The Hayward’s distinctive spaces, including one of the largest ever urban public art commissions, Event Horizon, which features sculptural casts of the artist’s body on rooftops and public walkways across central London, dramatically transforming the city skyline.
These new works, including a spectacular series of suspended figures created in light-infused webs of steel, are shown alongside a selection of works from the last three decades.
The exhibition is sponsored by Eversheds LLP and supported by Henry Moore Foundation.
