ANTONY GORMLEY, GLYNDEBOURNE OPERA HOUSE, GLYNDEBOURNE, ENGLAND, 2005

The Glyndebourne exhibition contains two standing double body-forms in cast iron. The heads of the bottom figures have been swallowed up by the figures balanced precariously on top of them. In PRESENT TIME (2001), an inverted man with outstretched arms is joined at the neck to a more generalised lower body-form. In BEARING III (1997), a naked man crouches on a similar form below. They are fused at the neck, and the man rests his feet on the wide, sturdy shoulders.
