Antony Gormley

SLADE POST-GRADUATE EXHIBITION, SLADE SCHOOL OF ART, LONDON, ENGLAND, 1979

Speaking on the work which was on display in SLADE POST-GRADUATE EXHIBITION, Antony wrote:

'To act in time and be acted on by time.

On the threshold, the works are gifts of the products of nature and culture to each other. They are an attempt to stop time and re-present the world. In revelation or insulation there is no concern to make things stand for anything other than what they are.'
