Antony Gormley: british sculptor and national icon

Antony Gormley is a contemporary English sculptor and artist who was born in London in 1950. He studied at Trinity College in Cambridge, then at the Central School of Art at the Goldsmiths College and Slade School of Art, where he graduated in 1979. He began his career as a sculptor, then started exploring other forms of art. He is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks. He uses his own body as a measure and a matrix, as a starting point in order to create figures that, through their particular arrangement in space, take on domestic but also estranging characteristics. Through his work he has always wanted to investigate the relationship between the human body and space. With an in-depth research into the body, symbol of memory and transformation, he has given a new human image and dimension to sculpture, using his own body as a subject and expedient. Over the years, the artist has exhibited his works in Britain and abroad, for example in Florence, Brazil, Germany, Austria, Denmark, and USA. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 1994 and he was made an Officer of the British Empire (OBE) in 1997. He is Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and Honorary Doctor of the University of Cambridge. In 2019 the artist held an exhibition entitled “ESSERE”, at the Uffizi in Florence, where he brought together old and new works, some created for the occasion. In the exhibition, he makes the man the centre of the experience; his creations in cast iron, steel and other solid materials interact with the viewer, becoming objects-subjects that contribute to creating a physical and mental dialogue between the viewer and the work itself.
