First pictures and video of the Antony Gormley sculpture at Margate’s Fulsam Rock

The Antony Gormley sculpture in place Photo Frank Leppard

The Antony Gormley sculpture has been installed on the chalk bed in front of Turner Contemporary today .

These brilliant photos by Frank Leppard and Paul Trindall show the ‘man’ model in place at Fulsam Rock.

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 is the first time these particular casts have been exhibited.

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.

  1. I don’t know why but I found this heart-stopping – stunningly beautifully and disturbing all at once. Brilliant. Thank you for super pics too.

  2. What about the visitors that don’t know about it and think it’s someone drowning since it’s life size lol

  3. I am wondering just how many times the RNLI are going to get called out,by anybody not knowing about it the RNLI will come out because that’s what they do only to find out that they have not been call to save anybody’s life, know it’s because TDC are letting this thing be there. Hope they have a budget set aside to put the coppers back in the RNLI pot. Totally stupid idea sorry but has anybody thought of that don’t look like it

    • Queennutty (a very apt choice of name),
      I’m pretty sure that the RNLI have a little more intelligence than to send their boat out to every report of a person in that location. If you don’t like it, just say so but don’t make up some nonsense reason for it being – bad idea.

    • Oh dear Queeny so negative. Not a totally stupid idea in the slightest. The RNLI will not be bothered by this. Embrace the new dear and grow.

  4. All very nice but how long before a jet ski or a small craft collides with it in the night or even during daylight hours!
