Antony Mark David Gormley, OBE, RA (b 1950) is a British sculptor. His work attempts to treat the body not as an object but a place and in making works that enclose the space of a particular body to identify a condition common to all human beings. The work is not symbolic but indexical – a trace of a real event of a real body in time. Gormley won the Turner Prize in 1994 with Field for the British Isles.

Gormley was heavily influenced by his two years spent studying Buddhist meditation in India: "Using the body as an arena is at the heart of my work: looking at the body not as an image, not as an icon to be used for its symbolic or narrative purposes, but the body as an open place of inquiry and exploration that is constantly changing, that has no defined characteristics and we just have to watch, to attend to".
