Gormley sculpture unveiled
A sculpture by Antony Gormley, titled “Another Time”, now stands on the roof of Exeter College’s Thomas Wood Building, overlooking the junction of Board 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.
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.
The Thomas Wood building is the work of Lionel Brett and was opened in 1964. It commemorates the 650th anniversary of the foundation of the College, the fourth oldest in Oxford.
