Forte di Belvedere, Firenze

Antony Gormley, one of the most acclaimed sculptors, presents Human, an exhibition curated by Sergio Risaliti and Arabella Natalini. Human brings together over one hundred works by Gormley, displayed throughout the 16th century fortress di Belvedere, with its extraordinary views over the city and the surrounding hills.

The exhibition includes the artist’s seminal installation Critical Mass, an "anti-monument evoking all the victims of the 20th century".  The work was originally conceived for a disused tram depot in Vienna in 1995, to "activate the whole building and make it a site of reflection on the dark side of German history". On view on the lower terrace of the Forte, Critical Mass acquires a new potency in relation to a renaissance city, the history of humanism and the continuing and ever-present relationship between money, militarism and power.
