This work presents the drawings of the sculptor Antony Gormley. Since the early 1980s drawing has been an essential part of the process whereby he has sought to "negotiate a relationship between the body as a thing and the body as a place". Some of the compositions relate closely to his sculptures, such as "The Angel of the North" (1998), one of the most famous public monuments in the United Kingdom; others form part of a parallel activity such as the earth drawings connected with "Field", his installations of thousands of diminutive clay figures, while those made with his own blood are yet another aspect of his preoccupation with the human form as mediated by his own body.
