Matrix III 2019

‘Matrix III 2019’ a massive structure of iron grids, building reinforcements, welded together into a huge structure. In the centre Gormley has left a void which he claims is the size of an average bedroom all of which challenges our visual perspectives as we struggle to gain a dimensionality. This to me spoke of superficiality. Here we have a gallery that’s 250 years old, but in the nature of the universe, completely impermanent as is this structure and more precisely the iron material itself. Behind the façade of the gallery and the structure we have porosity, corrosion, decay and decomposition. Our Earth’s, universes’ and our own transitionary destination.
