Antony Gormley

*1950 London, lives in London

first studied archaeology, anthropology and art history and is now known for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that focus on the relationship of the human body to space. In a critical examination of both his own and other people’s bodies, his works address fundamental questions about man’s position in relation to nature and the cosmos. His intention conceives the space of art as his place of becoming, of emergence, in which new behaviors, thoughts and feelings germinate.
In Austria he inspired in 2010 – 2012 by his project called Horizon Field”, in which he distributed 100 iron figures made of solid cast iron over 8 sites and over an area of 150 km², from Mellau to Dalaas (Vorarlberg), in the Alpine region.
Gormley was awarded the Turner Prize in 1994 and since being knighted in 2014 he has been allowed to use the title Sir”.

His numerous exhibitions range from the National Gallery, Singapore, Schauwerk Sindelfingen, Sindelfingen, Kunsthaus Bregenz, Hayward Gallery, London to Malmö Konsthall, Sweden.
