Oh dear… it seems that Antony Gormley’s life-size statues are creating quite a stir in New York!
When the exhibition was in London, I was excitedly trying to see how many of the statues I could see in one go. In New York however, concerned members of the public are phoning the police, worried that people are about to commit suicide.
So… what do we make of all this? Art is powerful and Gormley’s statues are making a big impact on the NY Art scene? Gormley’s statues are impressively human-like? Gormley’s work is yet to be recognised for what it is by the NY masses? Our neighbours across the Atlantic are more caring about their fellow human beings than we are? Answer on a postcard please.
