Description

Another Place is a piece of modern sculpture by British artist Antony Gormley located at Crosby Beach in Merseyside, close to the city of Liverpool. The art installation consists of 100 cast iron figures facing towards the sea and the figures are modelled on the artist's own naked body.

As the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea, and are subject to corrosion by seawater and colonisation by marine animals.

Today you can visit the site and see different perspectives of the sculptures depending on the state of the tide. If you visit at low tide, you can walk out onto the sandy beach and actually reach out and touch the sculptures.

The location of each sculpture determines how it is affected or 'eroded' by the twice daily tides. Some of the iron castings are covered in barnacles and small marine life, others are pitted and rough from the corrosive impact of seawater on the ferrous surface.

For anyone who likes to be challenged by art, or simply view the sea from a new perspective, this is a great place to visit.
