Horizons is an outdoor installation by Icelandic artist Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir (pronounced Stay-nun Thor-orens-daughter). The exhibition comprises 12 androgynous, life-sized iron figures, eleven standing and one seated. Each sculpture is unique, and has a polished glass band inserted in its torso. The arrangement of Horizons is not predetermined; at the BMA, the twelve figures will be interspersed between the Upper Plaza and the Sculpture Pit, requiring viewers to interact and connect with the sculptures over time and in different places.
