Antony Gormley: Living Room

Antony Gormley: Living Room
Library Shelf Location 18.GORM
Publication Date 2017

Encounters with Antony Gormley’s practice can be seen as a search for the meaning of the human figure. Yet his oeuvre possesses a far more stringent, radical, and systemised nucleus. Gormley’s earliest pieces were casts of his own body, though they are copies that are neither self-portraits nor portraits. Instead, they represent an area or a space that divests the bodily form from both the individual and the physical. He operates not in biology and psychology, but rather geometry and architecture, and as this catalogue demonstrates, such figures also comfortably inhabit the white cube. The publication includes a conversation with the artist and Benno Tempel.
