Over the past 25 years, Antony Gormley, perhaps Britain's best-known living sculptor, has revitalized the human image in sculpture. His radical investigations of the body as a place of memory and transformation use his own corpus as subject, tool and material. This richly illustrated catalogue is filled with new, never-before-seen sculptural works--a series of figures in light-infused webs of steel, and the monumental steel-block "Space Station," 20 feet high. Photographer Gautier Deblonde also chronicles a major new public project, "Event Horizon," which sites some 30 sculptures on buildings across central London, dramatically altering the city skyline. An in-depth interview with Gormley explores the development of his new work, as well as his relationship to the artists who have inspired him and to his contemporaries in the field of figurative sculpture.
