Antony Gormley: Firmament - Press View

Gormley was heavily influenced by his two years spent studying Buddhist meditation in India: "Using the body as an arena is at the heart of my work: looking at the body not as an image, not as an icon to be used for its symbolic or narrative purposes, but the body as an open place of inquiry and exploration that is constantly changing, that has no defined characteristics and we just have to watch, to attend to".
