Video: In the Studio - Antony Gormley’s cutting-edge workspace
This past summer I visited an exhibition of Antony Gormley's work at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria - a beautiful building designed by Peter Zumthor. Along with the elegance of the gallery itself, Gormley's work was absolutely incredible. His three diverse sculptures captivated visitors and engaged the entire space of each gallery, forcing viewers to interact with the sculpture and ponder the ways the human body interacts with surrounding space. The works completely dominated each gallery room guiding people to move into and become part of the sculpture themselves.
From the Tate website: Antony Gormley takes us on a tour of his studio. Designed in collaboration with the architect David Chipperfield, this converted warehouse just north of King Cross manages to accommodate hanger-like rooms, where teams of assistants work on large-scale sculptures, with more intimate, personal spaces.
