Antony Gormley spoke at Harvard GSD last Friday. His presentation focused on his large scale, experiential projects. It was interesting to hear his concepts that influenced the work. In the four major pieces he discussed he considers body and space and always returned to his investigation about the body in relationship with its habitat. I would love feeling my way around these massive sheets of metal, “White Cube”.
The Space Within is now on view at Southern New Hampshire University campus. It is interesting to see the work go from an urban to pastoral setting. I am pleased with this site in that both pieces can be viewed together, conjuring a dialogue between one another and the residential housing beyond.
Next time you find yourself at the Currier Museum of Art, drive 10 minutes further to SNHU campus and visit the Sculpture Park. An audio tour is available at each piece as well.

The sculpted imagery begins with a horse tail and a bridle wrapping throughout, meant to capture the owners love of dressage and her horse’s movement through nature. The mountains, stones and branch combine the owners love for the mountain landscape and surrounding natural elements.
