|Friday 1st - Tuesday 1st December||Antony Gormley Sculptures in Aldeburgh!|
|The Landmark Trust is pleased to announce an exciting collaboration with sculptor Antony Gormley as the centrepiece of their 50th anniversary celebrations next year. |
LAND comprises five distinct life-size standing sculptures by Antony Gormley cast in iron and installed at five Landmark Trust sites personally selected by the artist and the Martello Tower at the Brudenell Hotel end of town has been selected. The sculpture will be installed by May 2015.
Antony Gormley's work shares many of the themes found in Landmark's work: an engagement with landscape and the habitats we create, and how at a human level we resonate with them.
The five life-size vertical body-forms will add a point of focus to each location, being thoughtful to their setting, encouraging visitors to contemplate the specific elemental conditions of each site, and in the case of the four coastal locations, the different qualities of the North Sea, the English Channel, the Kilbrannan Sound, and the Bristol Channel.
