Located in the mountains of Vorarlberg, Austria, Horizon Field consists of 100 lifesize, cast-iron figures spread over an area of 150 sq km in the communities of Mellau, Schoppernau, Schrocken, Warth, Mittelberg, Lech, Klosterie and Dalaas. The work forms a horizontal line at 2,039 metres above sea level.

The figures in Horizon Field are expected to remain in the Alps for at least two years. Some of the figures in Horizon Field have been placed in isolation while others are easier to reach. All 100 figures were lowered into the meadow fields by helicopters with winches. This will be the last installation of this kind by Antony Gormley.
