Escape to Another Place

Crosby Beach, Merseyside

Forget crumbly sand sculptures; Antony Gormley’s 'Another Place' is seaside art on a whole new level.

The sculptor who brought a giant steel angel to NewcastleGateshead has also left his artistic signature on a town just north of Liverpool, and in doing so transformed a sleepy shoreline into a world-famous work of art.

Here on Crosby Beach, a hundred cast iron life-sized figures dot the bay’s wide sands, each gazing out to sea from a different point, becoming increasingly submerged as the tide comes in. The figures are all casts of Gormley’s own body, standing upright, hands by his side. You can touch them, photograph them, stand next to them, or simply join them in their peaceful contemplation of the watery horizon.
