FLARE II, SALISBURY CATHEDRAL, SALISBURY, ENGLAND, 2011 - 2012

01 April 2011 - 02 September 2012

FLARE II (2008) was suspended from the ceiling in the South Transept of Salisbury Cathedral.

Antony Gormley has said of this installation:

'In order to express the human state of embodiment less as a thing or a narrative than a state I have tried to make the space of the body open to light, to the gaze and to space at large. The act of sustained and materialised imagination of Salisbury Cathedral and the volume and transparency of the South Transept is a wonderful context for this work.'
