Antony Gormley

BRAIN FIELD, 2007

Lithograph on 300 gsm Velin d´Arches paper

100 x 69cm

Edition 29 from an edition of 40 plus 4 APs

BRAIN FIELD is the result of Antony’s first visit to Copenhagen Editions in Denmark, a relationship that has continued over many years. There, in 2007, he worked with the print house’s massive lithography stones, responding to their surfaces and using unorthodox methods and materials in the print process to realise a set of prints that continue to speak to his sculpture and drawings. Extending and continuing his investigation of body as place BRAIN FIELD appears as a map or a landscape, a field of expansive potential.

BIOGRAPHY

Antony Gormley (b. 1950) is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks

that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. His work has developed 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. Gormley continually tries to identify the space of art as a place of

becoming in which new behaviours, thoughts and feelings can arise.

Antony Gormley has had a number of solo shows at venues including The Royal Academy of Arts,

London (2019); Delos, Greece (2019); Uffizi Gallery, Florence (2019); Philadelphia Museum of Art,

Philadelphia (2019); Long Museum, Shanghai (2017); Forte di Belvedere, Florence (2015); Zentrum

Paul Klee, Bern, Switzerland (2014); Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (2012); Deichtorhallen Hamburg;

State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg (2011); Kunsthaus Bregenz (2010); Hayward Gallery,

London (2007); Kunsthalle zu Kiel; Malmö Konsthall (1993); and Louisiana Museum of Modern Art,

Copenhagen (1989). Permanent public works include the Angel of the North (Gateshead, England),

Another Place (Crosby Beach, England), Exposure (Lelystad, The Netherlands) Chord (MIT –

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA). He has also participated in major

group shows such as the Venice Biennale and Documenta 8, Kassel, Germany. Gormley won the

Turner Prize in 1994 and has been a member of the Royal Academy since 2003. He was made an

Officer of the British Empire in 1997 and knighted in 2014.
