Antony Gormley, “ROOM”, Beaumont Hotel, London, England, Photo: Stephen White
"I take the body as our primary habitat. ROOM contrasts a visible exterior of a body formed from large rectangular masses with an inner experience. The interior of ROOM is only 4 metres square but 10 metres high: close at body level, but lofty and open above. Shutters over the window provide total blackout and very subliminal levels of light allow me to sculpt darkness itself. My ambition for this work is that it should confront the monumental with the most personal, intimate experience." – Antony Gormley
"ROOM" was unveiled to the public on June 10. The sculpture, the interior of which is a hotel suite, is sited on the façade of London's new Beaumont Hotel. The Hotel will open in Autumn 2014.
The inaugural Mardalsfossen Art Project will open on June 20, 2014, with Antony Gormley’s "ANOTHER TIME". The project questions the relevance of the sublime today as well as the relationship between space, time and nature. The sculpture will be on view for two months in the mist from the 705 meter tall waterfall which overlooks the spectacular Eikesdalen Lake, Norway. 20 June – 20 August 2014
