British sculptor Anthony Gormley has been studying the human body all his creative life. He’s put iron men on hillsides and on tops of skyscrapers. Now the artist has unveiled what he calls the culmination of his more than 30 year career.
London’s White Cube gallery in Bermondsey has opened a new Anthony Gormley exhibition.
The new massive sculpture weighs 100 tons, is made up of 24 interconnected steel blocks and can accommodate up to 1000 people inside it according to the artist, The Guardian reports.
The structure looks like a complex asymmetrical building and is a representation of the human body that invites people inside. To explore the Model project one enters the “body” through the arms or the legs and journey through the labyrinth insid
"This is the first time, in a long and winding road that has taken 30-odd years to travel, that I've made a body that you can actually go in. I think it's a breakthrough," The Guardian quotes Gormley as saying.
