In this film, Antony Gormley discusses his two recent series of sculpture which apply the language of late Modernity to the inner condition of the body. Gormley sheds light on how the 'liner' series – dramatic linear sculptures made from mild steel rods – present a three-dimensional, abstract interpretation of the connectivity systems of the body and how the 'proppers' series, which developed out of the earlier block works, are about the language of architecture: in particular, the process of stacking and cantilevering.
