In this film, Antony Gormley talks about his major installation Time Horizon set amidst the ancient Graeco-Roman archaeological site at Catanzaro in Southern Italy. Installed at 1.64m below the current height of the earth, the works are installed on the same level as the Roman forum which was used as a meeting place for 350 years. Gormley explains how this group of iron sculptures, made from 'concentrated earth material', are a mineral way of capturing time and how he sees sculpture as a repository of memory and a place where time stands still.
