ANTONY GORMLEY is one of the world’s most influential and acclaimed contemporary artists. For four decades, his practice has unwaveringly focussed on the dynamic of the body within space. Underlying his sculptures, expansive site-specific installations and works on paper (including his prints) is a profound engagement with how the inside of the body relates to the outside, and where human beings stand in relation to both our immediate surrounds and the cosmos beyond. Gormley has achieved significant international recognition with a number of large-scale public artworks including: ‘Angel of the North’ (1998), a fifty-four metre wide steel sculpture of an angel overlooking the A1 motorway in England; ‘Event Horizon’ (2007-), thirty one life-size anatomically correct sculptures cast from the artist’s own body, originally displayed in London, then in New York, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Hong Kong; and ‘Inside Australia’ (2003), fifty one metal figures installed on the vast sodium crust at Lake Ballard, Western Australia. Antony Gormley won the Turner Prize in 1994 and was knighted in 2014.
