We need one hour of your time. You decide what to do with it. What will unfold is completely unpredictable. We are literally going public. We are putting the Plinth in your hands \u2013 or literally under your feet!\u2019 - Antony Gormley In the summer of 2009 artist Antony Gormley, previously best known for his iconic Angel of the North, created One & Other, a unique portrait of contemporary Britain. Across 100 days, 2,400 volunteers are spending an hour doing whatever they wish on the empty plinth in London\u2019s Trafalgar Square. The artwork has immediately attracted debate, derision, controversy and an enthusiastic following. The Art of Antony Gormley features the documentary Antony Gormley & the 4th Plinth, produced for Sky Arts, which reveals the background to this living monument and explores its origins in the sculptor's beautiful and mysterious art. Works created across more than two decades were filmed in HD for this visually sumptuous and thought-provoking documentary. The film also includes exclusive short films with Antony Gormley speaking about six of his major works: Angel of the North, Field, Allotment, Domain Field, Blind Light and Event Horizon. John Wyver is a media producer with Illuminations and Visiting Professor at the University of Westminster. His television productions have been honoured with a BAFTA, an International Emmy and numerous other awards. Narrator, Virginia Godwin.
