An Antony Gormley sculpture is being installed at Fulsam Rock by Turner Contemporary today

How the sculpture will look

A life-sized Antony Gormley sculpture is being installed today (August 18) on the chalk bed in front of Turner Contemporary .

The sculpture is being put in place at Fulsam Rock.

The sculpture

ANOTHER TIME is a series of one hundred sculptures and is identical to the 100 sculptures of ANOTHER PLACE (2007) which is permanently installed on Crosby Beach, Merseyside. The body forms are taken from 17 distinct body casting sessions that were carried out in 1995.

Each of the  individual pieces has been cast five or six times and shows the manner of its making – traces of cling film, mould joint lines, the sections of the plaster positive and the ingates for the molten metal are all clearly visible on the rusting surface.

The Margate sculpture will be the first time these particular casts have been exhibited.

Gallery and sea

The site chosen at Margate is in full view of the main windows of the Turner Contemporary gallery and is intended to make a connection between gallery and sea, time and tide, art and nature. It is purposefully connected to existing rocks that are covered at high tide.  It is also visible from the Harbour Arm, Rendezvous and the beach.

The sculpture, made of cast iron and weighing 650kgs, and the rocks, will be visible or disappear according to the tide.

The Sunley Gallery and first-floor balcony of the gallery will become spaces from which visitors can view and experience Another Time.

And it’s in…

A second Kent sculpture by Gormley

A second sculpture, this time of a pair of figures  placed on the shoreline, is planned for Folkestone.

Both sets of figures are planned to be in place until November.

It will be the first time these particular casts from Gormley’s series have been exhibited and it will be Gormley’s first outdoor installation in Kent since Waste Man (Margate, 2006).
