British artist Antony Gormley is known for his sculptures in elemental materials such as lead, iron, clay or steel which frequently use a cast of his own body as the starting point for a phenomenological or 'psycho-spatial' experience. Increasingly Gormley has created large-scale installations, often outside the gallery, which engage the public in active participation. Gormley had a major solo exhibition in IMMA in 1994, and was awarded the Turner Prize in the same year. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, and his work is included in many significant public collections.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, in line with current government restrictions, IMMA’s galleries will close from 24 December until further notice. All tickets purchased for Paula Rego, Obedience and Defiance exhibition will be refunded over the next two weeks. We appreciate your patience during this time.
