Another Place

"Another Place" is an artwork by Sir Antony Gormley. It is made up of 100 cast iron figures situated across an area of sandy beach over 3km long.

The Another Place figures - each weighing 650 kilos - are made from 17 body casts of the artist's own body and are shown at different stages of rising out of the sand, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in ‘silent expectation.’

Antony Gormley says the installation is a poetic response to the individual and universal sentiments associated with emigration - sadness at leaving, but the hope of a new future in Another Place.

Location: Crosby Beach, Liverpool

Photographer: Martin J. Bryers.
