Antony Gormley, Freeze
Text

Antony Gormley is one of Britain’s best-loved artists.

He won the Turner Prize in 1994, became a member of the Royal Academy in 2003, was made an Officer of the British Empire in 1997 and knighted in 2014.

Gormley has had major exhibitions at renowned spaces all over the world and a major solo exhibition of his work will be presented at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in September 2019.

He is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. Freeze is no exception.

Gormley continues to develop the potential opened up by sculpture since the 1960s through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others in a way that confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos.
