AUSTRIA---Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is hosting an exhibition of sculptures, which are part of Expansion Field by Antony Gormley in the Space Out exhibition at the Halle in Salzburg. Space Out continues the artist’s investigation of body and space, interrogating the body as place and architecture as the primary conditioner of our experience of space. Antony Gormley explains: "Expansion Field (2014) tests the relationship between what something feels like and its external appearance. Each work is the result of a moment becoming objectified in a frame, one that has no absolute dimension. Space Out is an attempt to sculpt space itself. [link]
