Antony Gormley

SCULPTURE AT STOKE, THE NATIONAL GARDEN FESTIVAL, STOKE ON TRENT, ENGLAND, 1986

01 May - 26 October 1986 

The 1986 National Garden Festival's 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.
