Antony Gormley: Antony Gormley

Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, 2008


This monographic catalogue surveys the work of British artist Antony Gormley, who has tried to figure out the meaning of being alive using his own body as a guide, searching for meanings and origins of human physical form or presence.

His interest dwells upon the human internal processes and the relationship a person has with the surrounding environment whether in an individual or collective way. He touches physical and emotional levels connecting body and mind resulting thus in mental process that is not about the experience, but a form of experience in itself that is proposed to the spectator. His ideas are captured through works of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing, using diverse materials such as bread, clay, even iron. His work positions him as a versatile artist and also as one of the most important of the world. Throughout is career he has had various influences such as Jackson Pollock, Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier, and Louis Khan.
