Another Place

We popped over to Crosby Breach to see ‘Another Place’ by Anthony Gormley.

For those who’ve not heard of this, ‘Another Place’ is 100 life sized cast iron male figures. They are visible on the beach and in the shallow water. They are said to be an exact replica of Gormley, even downstairs ahem, if you catch my drift.

Gormley was responsible for the Angel of the North in Gateshead in 1998 and has a extensive list of works.

The Iron men stretch from Seaforth docks right up to Formby point and it took a good hour or so to walk from one end to the other. Apparently at special times in the year the men are dressed by the locals in football kits, Father Christmas outfits or bathing costumes.

    Great pic Ish. I always think those figures look kind of lonely out there though.
