SCULPTURE AT STOKE, THE NATIONAL GARDEN FESTIVAL, STOKE ON TRENT, ENGLAND, 1986
01 May - 26 October 1986
The 1986 National Garden Festival at Stoke-on-Trent celebrated the union of art and industry. Natural forms, colours and harmonies, and the region's industrial heritage, provided the themes for this unique combination of architecture, sculpture and landscape. Just as the ridge dominated the Festival, so sculpture on the skyline was designed to draw the eye. Antony Gormley's solemn and watchful A VIEW, A PLACE (1985-86) was installed just beyond the Rocky Valley.
