Antony Gormley with Blind Light

Sculptor Antony Gormley, one of the UK's leading artists, has unveiled his new installation Blind Light at the Hayward Gallery in London.

Blind Light

Humidifiers create a dense vapour, reducing the visibility inside the eight by 10 metre glass enclosure. The resulting luminous fog makes it disorientating for those inside.

Event Horizon

Gormley's other new installation Event Horizon sees 20 body casts on the rooftops of public buildings in London. All the figures face the Hayward Gallery.

One and Other (2000)

Almost all of Gormley's work takes the human body as its subject. His steel sculpture One and Other (2000) is on display at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Another Place

Another Place, on Crosby beach in Merseyside, features 100 iron figures staring out to sea. The artist's installation was initially a temporary attraction, but has been made permanent.

The Waste Man

The artist also made the 25-metre high Waste Man sculpture out of recycled objects. It was burned in September 2006 in Margate, Kent.

Antony Gormley - Bed 1980-1

An early example of Gormley's work is Bed 1980-1. It is made out of 8,000 slices of white bread from which Gormley ate his own volume.

Asian Field

The 2006 Sydney Biennale featured Gormley's Asian Field, an installation of 180,000 small clay figurines crafted by 350 Chinese villagers in five days from 100 tons of red clay.

Domain Field

Gormley's Domain Field featured 290 unique steel sculptures moulded from the bodies of ordinary people living in Newcastle and Gateshead.

Angel of the North

The Angel of the North, overlooking the A1 in Gateshead, is perhaps Gormley's most famous work.
