"The history of western sculpture has been concerned with movement. I wish to celebrate the still and silent nature of sculpture. The work is designed to be placed within the flow of lived time." - Antony Gormley

About

Turner Contemporary is thrilled to confirm that the Antony Gormley sculpture ANOTHER TIME will be staying in Margate for another two years. The cast-iron statue that was installed on Fulsam Rock beside Turner Contemporary in summer 2017 has been granted an extension and will remain in situ until November 2020.

ANOTHER TIME is a series of one hundred, solid cast-iron figures by Antony Gormley who is known for his sculptures and installations that explore the experience of being human, of inhabiting a human body.

The sculpture in Margate becomes visible about 3 hours before low tide.

Individual sculptures from ANOTHER TIME have been installed all over the world, from the River Thames in London to Kunisaki in Japan. A figure has been positioned on Fulsam Rock on the Margate foreshore, visible at low tide from our first-floor balcony and from the shoreline behind the gallery. Two sculptures from the series are also sited in Folkestone as part of Double Edge, Folkestone Triennial 2017.


Antony Gormley describes these isolated forms, cast from his own body as "an attempt to bear witness to what it is like to be alive and alone in space and time". Made from iron, a material more usually associated with heavy industry, the industrial method of casting the sculpture is readable on its surface, whilst invisible joint lines reveal the way the plaster mould was divided and reassembled prior to casting.
