Add 'Another Place' by Antony Gormley to your Itinerary

Crosby Beach is the home of Another Place; 100-cast iron, life-size figures, sculpted by Angel of the North artist, Antony Gormley. 

The figures spread out along three kilometres of shore and almost a kilometre out to sea, while standing, silently, looking out towards the horzion. They each weigh 650 kilos and are made from casts of Gormley's own body. 

Having previously been seen in Cuxhaven in Germany, Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium, 'Another Place' is now a permanent feature in the UK, at Crosby Beach.

According to Antony Gormely, Another Place harnesses the ebb and flow of the tide to explore man's relationship with nature. He goes on to say "The seaside is a good place to do this. Here time is tested by tide, architecture by the elements and the prevalence of sky seems to question the earth's substance. In this work human life is tested against planetary time. This sculpture exposes to light and time the nakedness of a particular and peculiar body. It is no hero, no ideal, just the industrially reproduced body of a middle-aged man trying to remain standing and trying to breathe, facing a horizon busy with ships moving materials and manufactured things around the planet."

Please note - Crosby beach is a non-bathing beach with areas of soft sand and mud and a risk of changing tides. Visitors should stay within 50 metres of the promenade at all tides and not attempt to walk out to the furthest figures.

The artwork has been brought to the area by South Sefton Development Trust with funding from the Mersey Waterfront programme and the Arts Council.
