british artist antony gormley has developed a new, spectacular installation especially for the large deichtorhalle: horizon field hamburg will go on show during the documenta.
visitors will enter the north hall of the deichtorhallen to be confronted by a space that is almost 2,500 sq. m. in size, nearly 19 meters high and virtually empty. here, a vast, black, reflective structure will float 7.5 meters above the floor, inviting adventure. the suspended, slightly oscillating platform exploits the structural potential and architectural context of the deichtorhallen building, taking visitors into a new spatiotemporal matrix.
horizon field hamburg will provoke an experience of re-orientation and re-connection with walking, feeling, hearing and seeing. like a horizontal painting stretched taut in space, the visitor will be positioned as a figure in a free, floating, undefined ground
