The three friends and founders Maurizio, Lorenzo and Mario were together with #AntonyGormley yesterday night in #London to celebrate the impressive new solo exhibition of the artist at the #RoyalAcademy !
Starting this weekend until December 3rd #AntonyGormley is presenting and exhibition curated by Martin Caiger-Smith, with Sarah Lea, Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts following #AiWeiwei and #AnselmKiefer .
The exhibition will explore Gormley’s wide-ranging use of organic, industrial and elemental materials over the years, including iron, steel, hand-beaten lead, seawater and clay. We will also bring to light rarely-seen early works from the 1970s and 1980s, some of which led to Gormley using his own body as a tool to create work, as well as a selection of his pocket sketchbooks and drawings.
Throughout a series of experiential installations, some brand-new, some remade for the RA’s galleries, we will invite visitors to slow down and become aware of their own bodies. Highlights include ‘Clearing VII’, an immersive ‘drawing in space’ made from kilometres of coiled, flexible metal which visitors find their own path through, and ‘Lost Horizon I’, 24 life-size cast iron figures set at different orientations on the walls, floor and ceiling – challenging our perception of which way is up.
Perhaps best-known for his 200-tonne Angel of the North installation near Gateshead, and his project involving 24,000 members of the public for Trafalgar Square’s the Fourth Plinth, Antony Gormley is one of the UK’s most celebrated sculptors.
A day trip to London! Cake, more Cake and Art! It’s what weekends are built for..... to have fun making memories, while eating quality cake! It’s a simple recipe that works every time!
Organised to go to the Royal Academy to see the Anthony Gormley Exhibition! Wowee what an exhibition, brilliantly curated, interactive and visually jaw dropping! In one of the large galleries was this, the Matrix III, 2019.... with a little bit of added performance art of course! Approximately 6 tonnes of 6 mm mild steel reinforcing mesh. 7.1 x 9.3 x 15.15 m. It was simply brilliant. .
Quite a few years ago I went to a wedding, where Anthony Gormley was a guest. Anyway one of the other guests said ‘oh yeah that’s Anthony over there’ ....so I went over and got a photo with a lovely man.... also called Anthony but not Mr Gormley! Never did get to meet Mr Gormley! .
The Anthony Gormley Exhibition In at the Royal Academy until the 3rd of December! And absolute must if your into your Art! .
