Antony Gormley on London | Artist Cities – TateShots

The city and environment in which an artist lives and works naturally influences their ideas, practice and form. In this episode, sculptor Antony Gormley remembers his early years squatting in various buildings across North London and warns against losing the city’s richness of texture and welcoming character.

Artist Cities is a new series co-produced with The Guardian, in which we explore the native or adopted cities of a range of major international artists. We learn how each artist has identified and developed a relationship with the landscape and city they call home and how such connections materialise in their work.
