Clutch II by Antony Gormley
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is currently featuring the art of Antony Gormley in an exhibit titled ATAXIA II. The exhibit involves recent drawings and sculptures by Gormley. The exhibited works explore different states of the body with ‘loss of control’ as a general theme. The exhibited work also explores how the body is influenced socially and physically by outside forces.
Gormley describes his work as "an attempt to materialise the place at the other side of appearance where we all live." Gormley won the Turner Prize in 1994. The exhibit at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac will come to a close on May 23rd, 2009. For more information visit www.ropac.net or www.antonygormley.com.
