The Arts Society Leicester present Antony Gormley – a Body of Work
Speaker – Rosalynd Whyte
Often using his own body as his starting point, Antony Gormley’s sculpture explores the relationship of the human body to space. With a career spanning nearly 40 years his work has been shown in galleries throughout the world, including the Tate in London and the Hermitage in St Petersburg, but also on open display, as public art, such as ‘Another Place’ at Crosby Beach, near Liverpool. As well as sculptures that he is famous for, like the iconic ‘Angel of the North’, this lecture will look at some of his earlier and less well-known works, to give an overall view of the development of his work across his whole career, up to the present time.
