The Hayward will open 10am to 10pm daily for the final two weeks of the exhibition from Monday 6 August to Sunday 19 August.
Antony Gormley is one of the pre-eminent British sculptors of his generation.
For this important solo exhibition at the Hayward, his first major showing in a public gallery in London, Gormley will present a series of large-scale installations, including several newly commissioned works that dramatically engage with the gallery's architecture and directly solicit the viewer's engagement. Addressing fundamental questions of the body and space, appearance and disappearance, transformation and transcendence, the exhibition also includes an ambitious new public project, Event Horizon, featuring around 30 sculptures, casts of the artist's body, sited on the rooftops of buildings across central London.
Spreading outwards from the Hayward, the figures permeate the gallery's robust architecture, resonating with more intimate feelings about self and survival in the city.
