This ethereal print, 'Extent' (2008) was made by Antony Gormley in Mexico to coincide with his solo exhibition at MARCO, Monterrey. The print was made by using photocopier toner in pure spirit to create the image of a body on the surface of the etching plate. The random bleeding of the pigment suggests clusters of cells or energy zones within the body that seem to be barely contained by their barrier of skin. This dissolving, weightless body reflects Gormley's interest in registering the fleeting experience of inhabiting a body at a particular moment in time and space. In 'Extent', Gormley has combined images from two different plates: one of the human body and another of a simple horizon line.
