In this work I am attempting to bear witness to what it feels like to live in a body that is out of our control and subject to space, time and environment.
We now know more than we ever had about temporary nature of all material aggregation. In a quantum world, sculptural concerns over surface have to give way to our understanding of the relationship between mass and energy, and an admission of the precarious and provisional nature of all structures.
It is the attitude conveyed by the work that counts. Here is a ground onto which our uncertainties can be anchored. A ground onto which our sense of our own weight, vertical stance and liability to fall can be projected.
This work is as distinct from the idealised statue as possible. It represents the attempt of an individual to bear witness to the vicissitudes of subjective life.
Antony Gormley, January 2019
