Antony Gormley, Flesh, 1990, sculpture in concrete.

This is part of Gormley’s series,¬†Concrete Works, which attempts “to materialise the space of architecture and our place within it.”

It is a cruciform that explores the relationship between the cross and the shape of the body. Gormley used the lost wax process to make this sculpture, which means that there is actually a body shaped cavity inside this cross, not just the impressions of feet and fingers. Although the medium is concrete, there are organic implications in the sculpture. It’s ¬†like there are wisps of humanity intimated in its cold exterior.
