The British sculptor Antony Gormley is well known for his sculptures and installations, which examine the relationship between the viewer and the surrounding space.
Gormley is developing a new, monumental sculptural installation specially for the large exhibition hall of the Zentrum Paul Klee (Maurice E. Müller Saal).
Antony Gormley (b. 1950 in London) has had many solo exhibitions, for example in the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, the Diechtorhallen in Hamburg, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the Kunsthaus Bregenz, the Hayward Gallery in London, the Kunsthalle in Kiel, the Malmö Konsthall and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek, Denmark. His most famous works in the public space include Angel of the North (Gateshead, England), Another Place (Crosby Beach, England) and Exposure (Lelystad, The Netherlands). He has also been invited to take part in major group exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale and Documenta 8 in Kassel. Gormley won the 1994 Turner Prize. In 2013 the Japanese imperial family awarded him the Praemium Imperiale. The project in Zentrum Paul Klee is Antony Gormley’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland.
