UK Gormley exhibition works challenge view of the world

In this world of constant distractions, Gormley’s works bring stillness and silence – it’s art stripped down to bare life.

British sculptor Antony Gormley is recognised for using his medium to challenge the way people see the world.

From the British coastline to the rooftops of Manhattan, Gormley’s sculptures are known around the globe.

Now, work he produced over 45 years ago, is on display at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.
