Description

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the Landmark Trust commissioned an installation from Antony Gormley. Author Jeanette Winterson and photographer Clare Richardson travelled to five Landmark sites in remote parts of the British Isles: Saddell Bay, Mull of Kintyre; South West Point, Lundy; Clavell Tower, Kimmeridge Bay; Martello Tower, Aldeburgh and Lengthsman’s Cottage, Lowsonford to see Gormley’s life-size cast iron sculptures. Winterson has written a meditation in response to the works and landscapes she has encountered. This celebratory text is accompanied by Richardson’s photographs of the varied seascapes and waterways – and weather conditions – that the sculptures inhabit.Antony Gormley is one of the UK’s most distinguished contemporary artists. He won the Turner Prize in 1994 and has been a member of the Royal Academy since 2003. Gormley was made an Officer of the British Empire in 1997 and knighted in 2014. Novelist Jeannette Winterson is a regular contributor of reviews and articles to many newspapers and journals and has a regular column published in The Guardian. Clare Richardson has exhibited at White Cube, Ffotogallery Cardiff, the Victoria and Albert Museum and as part of the John Kobal Photographic Prize at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
