Antony Gormley

Since the early 1980s, Antony Gormley has used his own body to make sculptures that explore the human experience of being in the world. He is perhaps best known for his monumental sculpture in Gateshead, The Angel of the North. He won the Turner Prize in 1994 and his work has been exhibited extensively worldwide.
