Antony Gormley: Field for the British Isles.
Antony Gormley is renowned for his distinctive representations of the human form. This arresting installation is a sea of 40,000 miniature terracotta
figures, standing close together. Each one was handmade by a team of 100 volunteers, aged 7 to 70, from a community in St Helen’s, Merseyside. Gormley has described it as ‘...twenty-five tons of clay
energised by fire, sensitised by touch and made conscious by being given eyes...a field of gazes which looks at the observer making him or her its subject’.
