Artists of all kinds are attracted to north Devon, and currently it is the perfect location to view works by Damien Hirst and Antony Gormley
Sculptures by Antony Gormley have been installed at five Landmark sites across the UK and are freely available to view until May 2016. Each work is conceived in direct response to each location.
The LAND works at Clavell Tower, Lundy, Saddell Bay and Lengthman's Cottage are freely accessable at all times. Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a granite outcrop, three miles long and half a mile wide.
In the hubbub of the modern world it is a place apart, peaceful and unspoiled. Damien Hirst has strong links with Ilfracombe, and has given the town Verity, a 20.25 m tall statue that stands guard over the entrance to Ilfracombe harbour. Hirst's gallery Other Criteria can be found on the quay, along with his bar / restaurant 11 The Quay where his work is displayed in beautiful surroundings.
