Anthony Gormley, Another Place, Crosby Beach

Crosby Beach, Anothony GormleyBoyfriend and I went on a trip to Liverpool and took the train up the coast to Crosby Beach to take a gander at the 100 Anthony Gormley sculptures that are standing on the beach and in the water.  It’s called Another Place and was first shown in Germany in 1997, but was permanently installed at Crosby Beach in 2007.

You can see the effect of the salty sea air and water on the cast iron sculptures, as they have all begun to rust.Another PlaceThe figures are spread out on a huge stretch of beach, and the view is quite striking, and a bit creepy as it just looks like lots of solitary men standing still and staring out to sea (which is what it is, so that makes sense).Crosby Beach
