What Do Artists Do All Day? - 12. Antony Gormley
Documentary following Sir Antony Gormley and his team in their Kings Cross studio, preparing a new work called Tanker Field - a group of 60 enormous steel figures.
Sir Antony Gormley is one of the world's most popular artists. His iconic Angel of the North is a universally-admired work of public art and his sculptures have been seen by millions in cities all over the world.
In this film we follow the recently-knighted Gormley and his team in their busy Kings Cross studio, preparing a new work called Tanker Field - a group of 60 enormous steel figures that will be shown together at the Paul Klee museum in Bern. Reflecting on the ideas behind his sculptures, the collaborative nature of his studio and the excitement he still feels as new projects come together, the film offers an intimate and fascinating insight into one of the great artists of our time.
