On Sculpture
Antony Gormley
(UK: Thames & Hudson, @thamesandhudson, 2015; USA: The University of Chicago Press, @UChicagoPress, 2015)

One of the most exciting sculptors of our time, Antony Gormley is the creator of breathtaking public installations. Even casual fans will recognise Event Horizon, a collection of thirty-one life-size casts of the artist’s body that were installed atop buildings in places like London’s South Bank and New York’s Madison Square, The Angel of the North welcoming motorway drivers to the North-East of England, and Field, formed by tens of thousands of standing clay figurines overflowing across a room’s floor. Projects like these demonstrate Gormley’s ongoing interest in exploring the human form and its relationships with the rest of the material world, and in this book he shares valuable insight into his work and the history of sculpture itself.
