You may have seen British artist Anthony Gormley’s life-sized sculptures circulating around the internet recently, but he’s actually been creating these unique human body installations since the 1980’s. Gormley is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that explore the relationship of the human body to space. Gormley works with numerous materials, such as iron and steel to form the abstract figures. “My work is to make bodies into vessels that both contain and occupy space. Space exists outside the door and inside the head. My work is to make human space in space.” Check out more of his work below.
