british artist antony gormley created a new installation especially for the large deichtorhalle in germany entitled ‘horizon field hamburg’.
visitors were welcomed to a new spatio-temporal matrix – a warping empty space of almost 4,000 square metres in size and nearly 19 meters high.
within the room an expansive, black, reflective structure floated and swayed nearly 7.5 metres above the floor – a project
attempting to harness the architectural potential of the deichtorhallen building, now over a century old. the shadowy
artwork, which was only sparsely illuminated by light that came from the skylights above, provoked an experience of reorientation
and re-connection with the senses to heighten hearing, seeing and feeling.
