Event Horizon

Event Horizon, British artist Antony Gormley's internationally acclaimed public
art project will be the largest and most prolific art installation in Hong Kong.
31 naked man sculptures are mounted at both street level and on rooftops in
Central and Western district looking out across the urban landscape.
