Filter by Antony Gormley

Filter is one of a number of new works by Gormley which represent a departure from his earlier method of encasing his body towards more open works examining the relationship between interior and exterior form.

The piece is suspended, suggesting flight, levitation or perhaps an 'out of the body' spiritual experience. Suspended inside is a heart, the organ associated with life (and death) and a symbol of love. The open ring structure allows air and light to pass through it and glistens when moving. This work was acquired through an Art Fund grant and a private donation.
