Description

Gormley is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. Freeze is no exception. Gormley continues to develop the potential opened up by sculpture since the 1960s through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others in a way that confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos.

About Antony Gormley

Antony Gormley (English, b. 1950) is an English sculptor known for his monumental works and public commissions. Gormley’s pieces, modeled after the artist himself, often explore the human form. Despite his work’s symbolic propensity, his figures usually possess very literal implications. These sculptures explore a unifying human condition and experience as they define a particular body in a particular space at a particular time. In 1994, Gormley won a Turner prize for 'Field for the British Isles' (1993).
