The exhibition - which will take place in the Magliabechiana hall of the Uffizi from 26 February to 26 May 2019 - will bring together some works by Antony Gormley, made of different materials and dimensions, which explore the body in space and the body as space. The new, spacious room on the ground floor of the museum, where the natural light spreads in twelve crisp spaces with vaulted roof punctuated by six stone pillars and without internal walls, will host twelve works by the artist. Two more will be placed in the spaces of the historical collection, while another will be installed on the Uffizi terrace.

The exhibition will propose several new works created for the occasion, including Veer II (2018), a three-dimensional cast iron evocation of a tense nervous system at the center of the body, life size, and Breathe (2018), an expansive work large covered with lead that applies the cosmic principles of the Big Bang to the singularity of a subjective body.
