Gormley's nude sculpture with the Empire State Building in the background
The sculpture and the Flatiron Building
One of the 31 body form sculptures by artist ANTONY GORMLEY is installed at Madison Square Park in Manhattan's Flatiron District, right in front of the iconic Flatiron Building. The sculpture is part of an outdoor exhibition called Event Horizon, which runs from March 26 through August 15. The nude sculpture is made of iron, cast from Gormley's own body. The 31 life-size iron and fiberglass figures are scattered in peripheral areas of the park - rooftops and nearby sidewalks streaming with pedestrians. Antony Gormley (born 1950) is an English sculptor.
