The British artist Antony Gormley rediscovered the human body as a theme for contemporary art. In 1994 he won the Turner Prize for his remarkable work Field, which consists of around 35 000 hand- high terracotta figures. His work, in the shape of lead and iron figures cast from his own body, is often to be found in streets, squares and parks or on the sea shore - as in Cuxhaven not long ago: striking markers in public spaces which reveal the connections between art, society and the urban environment as both a metaphysical and a political experience. This book, with photographs by Benjamin Katz, documents an exhibition by the artist and sheds new light on his work with essays by Antje von Graevenitz and Ingrid Mehmel. The artist: Antony Gormley, born 1950 in London, where he lives and works. Numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale in 1982 and 1986, 1987 documenta 8 in Kassel.
