"Antony Gormley: First Exhibition in Spain"
2002-01-18 until 2002-03-31
Centro Galego de Arte Contemporanea
Santiago, , ES Spain

CGAC is delighted to present the first survey in Spain of the work of Turner prize winning British artist Antony Gormley. One of a small number of sculptors who have radically re-visioned the place of the body in contemporary art, Gormley has inserted the body into the expanded field of post-modern practice in works such as Another Place, Allotment and Field. He has shown his work internationally for two decades in group shows such as the Venice Biennale and Documenta 8, and in solo exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery, the Serpentine Gallery, Tate St. Ives and White Cube.

This show will be a survey of his work from 1978 to the present, charting his exploration of his own body as a starting point from which to explore the relationships between bodies and the contexts which they inhabit. Gormleys sculptures are above all, direct, and it is this directness which forms the basis of their relationship with the viewer as he/she seeks to situate these forms, to use his or her own body as a receiver.

In a sense, Gormleys work can be divided into those works which denote the human figure, such as Critical Mass, his 1999 installation at the Royal Academy in London, and those which connote the figure, such as Room (1980) and Cord (1991). In these connotative works, it is the trace of the human presence that dominates.

These works will be included in the exhibition at CGAC, together with pieces from all the major series such as the Insiders,Quantum Cloud and Allotment.
