About the Artist

Antony Gormley b.1950

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.
