Antony Gormley’s Another Place comprises 100 life-size cast-iron figures, all facing out to sea along 3 km of the intertidal zone on the beach at Crosby in Merseyside. The statues were cast from 17 distinct moulds of the sculptor’s own body and each one weighs approximately 650 kg and is mounted on a 2 m vertical steel pile.
The work was first exhibited in 1997 in Germany, followed by Norway and then Belgium before going on to Crosby. It was originally scheduled to appear there from July 2005 to November 2006 and then go on to New York. In March 2007, however, Sefton Council approved plans to keep the installation on Crosby Beach permanently, overturning a previous decision made after health and safety concerns had been raised.
