Over the last 25 years Antony Gormley has revitalized the human image in sculpture through a radical investigation of the body as a place of memory and transformation, using his own body as subject, tool and material. Since 1990 he has expanded his concern with the human condition to explore the collective body and the relationship between self and other large-scale installations like Another Place, Domain Field, and Inside Australia. His recent work increasingly engages with energy systems, fields and vectors, rather than mass and defined volume, evident in works like Clearing, Blind Light, Firmament and Another Singularity.
According to the artist: 'There was a lot of experimentation, but the "Domains" really got going when I realized I could describe the space of the body as a matrix formed from eight lengths of stainless steel in a reversal of the Greek pointing system, with rods resting on the internal surface of the body. They are put together with a loose set of rules: one end of each T-connection should always be touching the skin or boundary of the human body.'
Antony Gormley was a member of the 2003 jury Prix de Rome (NL).
