Turner Contemporary bucks art trend with Gormley Easter sculpture

Turner Contemporary's newest sculpture Photo Skies Over Thanet

Antony Gormley has created a special Easter sculpture for Turner Contemporary.

The artist says his new Rabbit model on the chalk bed at Fulsam Rock is an expression of his ‘sense of humour.’

The ‘Bathing Bunny’ is expected to stay in place until around noon today (April 1). It is a temporary replacement for the Gormley ‘Man’ which is one of 100 sculptures forming the Another Time installation across the country.

Turner Contemporary deputy director Warren Hopkins said: “We think the sculpture is a perfect precursor to our Summer exhibition, Animals & Us.

“It was installed by our gallery assistants Roger and Peter and is a really thumping addition to our offering. Our aim is to buck the trend of serious art and embrace our fluffier sides.”

The sculpture was caught on camera this morning (April 1) by isle photographer Skies Over Thanet.
