Exposure, Antony Gormley

Balancing on the boundary between land and water, a 26-meter-high crouching man looks out over the Markermeer. This landscape artwork was created by Antony Gormley.

Balancing on the boundary between land and water, a 26-meter-high crouching man looks out over the Markermeer. Antony Gormley became fascinated by the feasibility of the new polder and allowed himself to be seen by the gigantic work of art Exposure inspired by the virgin landscape. Driving through the polder, he discovered a landscape with a rhythm of straight lines of canals, fields and windmills. He left in the electricity pylons that lie like a nervous system in Flevoland Exposure return.

The artwork can be recognized from afar as a transparent human form. The closer you get, the more abstract and impressive this complex piece of engineering becomes. Gormley often takes the human form as a starting point. Usually he uses his own body as an example.
