Antony Gormley: Widely Acclaimed British Sculptor

Antony Gormley is a distinguished British artist perhaps best known for his Angel of the North – a permanent national landmark in the UK, and Field – the collectively generated work involving thousands of small clay figurines that have filled entire museum spaces across the globe. The human body is a central theme in Gormley’s work, emerging out of his engagement with archaeology, anthropology and Asian and Buddhist thought, as much as out of Western sculptural tradition. The artist uses his own body, as well as those of others, as a starting point to create works that, through their particular arrangement in space, confront fundamental questions about where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos. His in-depth research into the body as a symbol of memory and transformation has given a new dimension to sculpture in the twentieth and twenty-first century. Antony Gormley’s work has been widely exhibited, recently in a major solo show at the Royal Academy, London (2019) and a new temporary large-scale commission for Brooklyn Park, New York, entitled New York Clearing (2020). In 2019, the artist also presented the exhibition “Essere” at the Uffizi in Florence, where he brought together works of different materials and scales. At the centre of the show were two major sculptures, Passage and Room, made 35 years apart. The exhibition was predicated on the dialogue between these key works, and stasis and movement: imaginative and actual space. Describing his intentions for the show, the artist said: "I use the indexical impression of my own living body rather than mimesis to make work that both displaces and encloses, to engage and activate attention."
