Fabricated from 100 tons of weathering sheet steel, Antony Gormley’s “Model” is both sculpture and building–human in form but at no point visible as a total figure. Installed at White Cube Bermondsey, London, the work can be entered through a ‘foot, ‘ from which visitors then journey through its interconnected internal chambers, the sculpture demanding that we adjust our pace and bend our bodies to its awkward geometry. Also included in the exhibition are new sculptures built of solid iron blocks, whose uncompromising orthogonals belie their emotional punch. Propping up the architecture, articulating a corner or lying flat on the ground, these dark works test the bounding condition of the space. A selection of Gormley’s working models, installed on a series of tables, complete the volume. Together, these works powerfully extend Gormley’s exploration of the body as a site of transformation.
