University of Cambridge alumnus Antony Gormley’s sculpture DAZE IV is now display at his alma mater.
The cast iron sculpture was originally situated on Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Landmark Trust. It is part of Gormley’s LAND series of sculptures which the artist has referred to as “standing stones: markers in space and time… catalysts for reflection.”
DAZE IV joins other Gormley sculptures already at Cambridge University, including Earthbound: Plant (2002), a life-size metal sculpture of the human form buried upside down in front of the MacDonald Institute for Archaeological Research on the Downing Site: only the soles of the feet are visible. Jesus College has one of the 'Learning to See' works, which is a single standing figure, with feet together and arms at sides in an attitude of watchful repose, based on a cast of the artist’s body.
