artist biography

Antony Gormley is a British artist, widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space.

 

Born in London in 1950, Antony Gormley has had a number of solo shows at venues including the Forte di Belvedere, Florence (2015); Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern (2014); Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil; Deichtorhallen Hamburg; State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg; Kunsthaus Bregenz; Hayward Gallery, London; Kunsthalle zu Kiel; Malmö Konsthall; and Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen.

 

Major public works include the Angel of the North (Gateshead, England), Another Place (Crosby Beach, England), Exposure (Lelystad, The Netherlands), Chord (MIT – Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA). He has also participated in major group shows such as the Venice Biennale and Documenta 8, Kassel, Germany. Gormley won the Turner Prize in 1994 and has been a member of the Royal Academy since 2003. He was made an Officer of the British Empire in 1997 and knighted in 2014.

 

“...what I am trying to achieve in my drawing is the same as my sculpture: to explore the twofold nature of our experience.

 

The first is being in that space—whatever or wherever it is—that we are in when we close our eyes, and the second is being in that space which exists beyond the skin and is seemingly infinite…

 

For me these are the two imperatives: to make a true statement of embodiment, while also acknowledging the infinity of space.”

 

- Antony Gormley
