Antony Gormley – Shy
Piazza Duomo, Prato
Direction: Matteo Frittelli
Camera: Alessandro Passamonti, Fabrizio Farroni
Color & Sound: Filippo Prestinari
In 2021, thanks to the collaboration with the Associazione Arte Continua, was realized the opportunity to install the work of Antony Gormley in the center of Prato. Against a history of statuary that has traditionally supported and celebrated political and religious power, Gormley‘s project Shy attempts to recognize and catalyze subjective experience. There is both empathy and humour in this work. The artist wishes to reanimate the potential for art in the collective realm to celebrate daily life.
