If you are visiting or living in London I definitely recommend a stop at the magnificent Gormley exhibit at the Royal Academy. Having seen Another Place in Crosby last week I was especially excited to meet up with my mate Barbara and see what the RA had in store for us. We were not disappointed.
Then into the first rooms of sculptures
A lot of the pieces allow for full interaction – this one you can walk around or through
The iconic steel Gormley male figures were in abundance
Tons of steel hanging from what looks like a glass ceiling but has somehow been reinforced.
This piece was designed by Gormley especially for this room at the RA
The final rooms had an enormous hanging metal sphere and another one filled with mud, stones and water – in the RA!!!
As we headed out we visited one of the other rooms which had an array of coloured window displays plus a massive table filled with biscuits that you could interact with – my edible masterpiece is below.
A fab exhibit and we finished our day by crossing the road to Fortnum and Mason for afternoon tea – although I seemed to have stumbled into the Xmas department (yes again – grrr) en route – not so happy then but much happier after tea:)
