Xavier Hufkens presents the second exhibition by Antony Gormley at the gallery.

An exhibition of new work including REACH I (1996), TEST I (1996), VIEW I (1996), CONCENTRATE I (1996), COMPOUND I (1996), and CONSTRUCT I (1996). This exhibition marked the first time that Gormley presented multiple cast iron works, a departure from the lead bodycases which dominated many of the past exhibitions. These solid iron casts show the intimate body taken directly from a mould that was mediated only through a thin layer of clingfilm. In the sequence of four empty rooms these bodys were exhibited horizontally in various extended positions, floating just above the floor - belying their weight.
