“I'm trying to make work that is reflective and is encouraging of reflection”
- Antony Gormley
The visit to the exhibition HUMAN, open (free entrance) until 27 September 2015, will bring you to the location of Belvedere Fort, a space reinterpreted by the British artist with his installations.
Here are scattered the Antony Gormley’s sculptures, that cast light on the human presence - there are the implications of the title - in the spaces of the fort: the villa and the terracing all around.
The installation of Critical Mass II (1995), is made of twelve figures in a sequence of different poses. In the west part of the bastion the same figures are exhibited in a chaotic mass, as they recall the conflict behind the idea of human progress.
For those who have never heard of artist Antony Gormley, as much as those who know him, this is an opportunity not to be missed to visit HUMAN.
