Last month I went to the White Cube in Bermondsey to see a new exhibition by Anthony Gormley, the sculptor. The title of the exhibition is 'Fit' and 'makes reference to both the citizens of a city like London and the migrant seeking refuge.' Gormley's work focuses on the human figure and sometimes it is obvious and other times you can only see a figure when you are viewing it from one particular spot.
This human shaped 12 metre long tunnel invites you in to explore. It only has the one entrance and on entering the confined space you are engulfed in darkness as you try to reach the end. Only one person at a time is allowed to enter. It is a surprisingly unnerving experience and a couple of people had to come out before getting to the end.
This is 'Sleeping Field' and consists of 500 small iron sculptures. At first it just looks like random blocks of metal like a miniature city. But take a second look and you see the blocks as human figures in different states of rest or despair.
