Antony Gormley: Blind Light

Hayward Gallery

17 May – 19 August 2007, Hayward Gallery 

For this exhibition, the artist’s first major showing in a public gallery in London, Antony Gormley presented a series of large-scale installations, including several newly commissioned works that dramatically engaged with Hayward Gallery’s architecture.

Taking the body as its point of departure, the exhibition explored the ways in which we orient ourselves spatially; how we react when disoriented and how we relate to architecture and the built environment.

Alongside large-scale new commissions, the exhibition featured the artist’s earlier sculptures, drawings, prints and photographs. It also took Gormley’s work beyond the gallery with the ambitious project Event Horizon, which featured 30 life-size casts of the artist’s body sited on the rooftops of surrounding buildings and on Waterloo Bridge, each one visible from the gallery’s sculpture terraces.
