The works of internationally renowned British sculptor Antony Gormley, including his 2015 sculpture PLACE, investigate the relationship of the human body to space and question where human beings stand in relation to nature and to the cosmos. As Gormley has stated, “We exist in space, but space also exists in us.” Gormley has exhibited widely around the world, including solo shows at Long Museum, Shanghai; Forte di Belvedere, Florence; Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern; Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Brasilia; and The State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg.
Gormley was awarded the Turner Prize in 1994. He has been a Royal Academician since 2003 and is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, an Honorary Doctor of the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Trinity and Jesus Colleges, Cambridge. Rizzoli published a monograph on the artist in 2017. Gormley is represented by White Cube.
