Antony Gormley sculpture unveiled at Exeter

A sculpture by Antony Gormley, titled “Another Time”, now stands on the roof of Exeter’s Thomas Wood Building, overlooking the junction of Broad Street and Turl Street.

Dubbed “The Iron Man” by the local press, the sculpture was unveiled by Oxford’s Lord Mayor, Susanna Pressel, on February 15th in the presence of Antony Gormley. It looks towards the site in Broad Street where Hugh Latimer, Nicholas Ridley and Thomas Cranmer were burned at the stake for their beliefs in the 16th century.

Around 50 guests, including the Rector, Antony Gormley and the Mayor, were on the roof for the unveiling, with approximately a further 150 watching from ground level. After the unveiling, Mr Gormley gave a talk to Exeter’s students in a packed Saskatchewan Room, and stayed for High Table dinner in the College.

The sculpture is the gift of an anonymous benefactor. It was erected by Kingerlee and the location designed by Berman Geddes. Both companies donated their services to the College.
