Antony Gormley: Critical Mass a hardcover book that explores Antony Gormley’s work and his lifelong engagement with Auguste Rodin. This beautifully illustrated volume documents the enduring impact of Rodin’s work on Gormley, from insightful conversations with Gormley and reflection on the work of both influential sculptors. Copies signed by the artist.

British artist Antony Gormley (1950) is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations, and public artworks that focus on an investigation of the body as a place of memory and transformation, using his own body as the subject.  The book presents a dialogue between the Gormley and Rodin (1840–1917), through their respective times. This fascinating encounter is staged through extensive installation photography of Gormley’s work within and around the Musée Rodin in Paris (2023-24), never-before-seen drawings, workbooks, and models from the artist’s studio, as well as Rodin’s own sculptures, maquettes, and drawings.
