Galleria Continua presents a solo show by widely acclaimed British artist, Antony Gormley, in its Beijing space. For the artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, the site-specific installation, Host, floods the central spaces of its interior to a depth of 23 centimetres. Approximately 95 cubic metres of clay from Beijing’s Changping district and seawater from the nearby Tianjin Coast will be mixed at a ratio of 50:50. The experience of the work is not only visual, but sensate: the viewer is invited to stand at one of the three thresholds leading into the space.
