Abstract:

"Anthony Gormley is widely recognised as one of the most imaginative and original artists working in the UK today. This illustrated book accompanies the exhibition Anthony Gormley: Blind Light at The Hayward, the artist's first major showing in London in over 25 years." "Since the 1980s Gormley has focused consistently on the human figure, often using his own body as the starting point for works that explore our perception of space, architecture, and bodily presence." "Alongside specially commissioned photography of Gormley's major new projects, the book includes an original visual essay by the artist that elaborates his aesthetic preoccupations with images selected from his own photographic archive. Essays from leading writers and scholars Anthony Vidler, Susan Stewart and W. J. T. Mitchell provide a context in which to understand Gormley's new work, while an in-depth interview with The Hayward Director Ralph Rugoff and co-curator Jacky Klein reconsiders Gormley's place within contemporary culture and the history of art."--BOOK JACKET.
