HORIZON FIELD SINGAPORE AT NATIONAL GALLERY SINGAPORE
On display from 6 August 2021 to 30 October 2022, the exhibition at The National Gallery SIngapore features the new large-scale installation Horizon Field Singapore (2021) as part of the Gallery's annual Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Commission Series. In the new commission, visitors can step into a matrix of intersecting metal and take part in a spatial experience that continually shifts as we walk through it. This work expands Gormley's approach to sculpture as a collaborative, ongoing dialogue between the artist, the object and the audience.
For the first time, this year's commissioned work is complemented by three further sculptures that together trace four decades of Gormley's practice: Sense (1991), Close V (1998), and Ferment (2007). Placed at key locations throughout the Gallery, these works form a sequence of what the artist calls "acupuncture points" within the architecture, activating their surroundings and provoking connections with their audience.
