Antony Gormley

The Tate's website has provided this online resource about the sculptor, Anthony Gormley. This series of videos includes an introduction to Gormley's art by Dr Richard Noble, Visual Arts Department, Goldsmiths College. Four examples of Gormley's work can be explored in individual video files, 'Bed'; 'Natural Selection'; 'Sound II'; and 'Another Place'. Gormley also discusses his work in an online interview. Alternatively the video can be viewed in segments where Gormley answers individual questions: 'Is modern art for everyone?', 'What significance does the body have in 21st century art?' or 'Has being an artist been liberating for you?'
