out ‘n’ about

ANTONY GORMLEY 

Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J OBD

21st September - 3rd December 

Expect the unexpected. Anything can happen to your interpretation of art when you’re confronted with acclaimed British sculptor Antony Gormley and this, his biggest solo show in over a decade, has many a surprise in store.

Starting with the famous Royal Academy courtyard where his first work, the tiny Iron Baby, 1999 will be on show, offering us a curious eye on scale, the sculpture is very small and the courtyard very big! The artist famed for his landmark public sculptures, like the Angel of the North and eerie lone figures scattered along the beach or atop sky high buildings in cities allover, challenges the way we perceive sculpture related to the setting. Where he places his work is just as important as how we perceive the idea itself. Thirteen rooms will be configured with installations spread through the Main Galleries including many new works especially conceived for the exhibition.


Gormley is renowned for his ‘body case’ sculptures, using his own body as a subject.  Expect to see installations of sculptural figures, upside down, inside out and just hanging out! From stark figures to clouds of intersecting mesh, we’re encouraged to engage with our bodies, with space, the environment, with everything!  It will offer “critical dialogue with perception” he says… all dizzying stuff! It promises to be an epic exhibition including his workbooks and drawings, many in unexpected materials like crude oil, earth, even blood, sculptures and experiential environments. A whole gallery will be filled with seawater and clay suggesting life related to water and the curators helpfully suggest that some visitors might be sensitive to enclosed spaces - the mind boggles as to what lies ahead or beneath.

He’s a deeply intellectual artist who challenges the way we look at the world and an exhibition not to be missed.  Book now,  switch off for a moment and just reflect!

To help encourage younger art lovers (17-25 ) 3,000 free tickets will be donated through the BNP Paribas AccessArt25  programme, check website for further details
