Encounter a cast iron baby, a hovering cloud of steel mesh, a gallery filled with seawater and clay, plus more intriguing Antony Gormley installations at the Royal Academy of Arts.
The British sculptor takes over the institution’s 13 large-scale spaces in its Main Galleries, with works spanning whole rooms, as he delves into the notions of our bodies engaging with space, our bodies in space and our bodies as space.
See rarely displayed works from the 1970s and 1980s, alongside newly commissioned pieces. The artist's famed body sculptures are present, with Lost Horizon I made up of 24 cast iron figures; while two of the British artist’s works from the 1990s, Body and Fruit, fill the central hall.
There’s also a chance to explore Gormley’s talents as a draftsman, with drawings from throughout his career, as well as workbooks giving a glimpse into the artist’s thoughts.
