New Publication: Gormley / Lehmbruck: Calling on the Body, published by Hatje Cantz, 2022
Out now is Gormley / Lehmbruck: Calling on the Body, a major new publication showcasing Gormley’s recent exhibition at the Lehmbruck Museum.
Published by Hatje Cantz, this richly illustrated catalogue not only spotlights Gormley’s sculptures, but also places a specific emphasis on his drawings, workbooks and models. The book features an introductory essay by the Lehmbruck Museum’s director, Söke Dinkla, who vividly draws out the dialogue between Gormley and Lehmbruck, whilst curator Ronja Friedrichs writes on the museum’s celebrated architecture and its resonance for Gormley’s practice. Art historian Jon Wood places a specific emphasis on Gormley’s models and his working process. A conversation with the artist offers insights into his way of thinking and working as well as the value of sculpture in our society.
