Subject II 2019

‘Subject II 2019’, a single figure of tightly packed steel bars, the ‘zone beneath the skin’ according to Gormley. It brought home to me the transience of the space we occupy. The temporary nature of our place in the world. Watching the other visitors, there we were, standing still, moving, walking, bending, solid and ‘here’ yet seconds later the space occupied once again becomes vacant, we’ve gone, the site we stood on is orphaned.
