Antony Gormley

PRESENT TIME AT MANSFIELD COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, 2013 - 2014

Antony Gormley's PRESENT TIME is currently on long-term loan to Mansfield College in Oxford. 

PRESENT TIME (2001) is my attempt to engage with the mind/body problem. It is a materialisation of embodied mindfulness. The lower form is an enclosed mass, armed like a marine mine; the upper one open with all its limbs free, embracing space. It uses the stasis of sculpture to interrupt the living time of the viewer. The stillness of this materialist proposition invites us to reassess our position in time and space.
