" I DON'T THINK I AM TRYING TO FREAK PEOPLE OUT. I'M SAYING , LET'S THINK ABOUT THIS PLACE..."
Peter Aspen writes an article here, which captures my attention. He talks to the widely celebrated artist, Antony Gormley. In the article, Aspen enquires as to his most recent work, Hayward Gallery, London. In this show Gormley wishes to demonstrate, in a physical presence, using casts of his own body, how the everyday is overlooked or missed out. "MY CONTENTION IS, PERHAPS WE SHOULD BE MORE IN TUNE WITH OUR OWN INTERNAL SPACE," he says.
Here on the right is his most famous and celebrated works, "ANGEL OF THE NORTH".
