Another Place, a 2005 installation of a 1997 work by Antony Gormley at Crosby Beach, Liverpool, England. The work includes one hundred cast-iron sculptures sited on a beach where corrosion is part of the process of the artwork. While these sculptures will require regular structural inspections, the artist expects the figures eventually to succumb to the sea or to be buried in the sand. © Antony Gormley.
