Still Body & Unleashed Soul

Reflections on Antony Gormley.

Antony Gormley is one of Britain’s most important contemporary sculptors, and installations of his work have taken place worldwide. For forty years, Gormley has found surprising and provoking ways of exploring the human form and its relation to space and time. Deeply charmed by the phenomena of the body such as the unseeable space the body occupies and its relationship to architecture, he creates works that replicate the memories of our bodies with sculptures that range from the semi-realistic to the semi-abstract. By analyzing the human body’s journey through light and darkness, he managed to create somatic narratives and placed them in the most unexpected and engaging locations around the world. “In this atmosphere of light there is a feeling of timeliness, of being outside industrial time,” he states. “Sculpture is a threshold to another attitude to time; it provides the invitation to escape mechanised time as we know it.”
