Whilst visiting Canterbury Cathedral last weekend, we visited a sculpture by Anthony Gormley.
The piece, called Transport, is suspended at the cathedral above the site of the first tomb of Thomas Becket, the archbishop murdered at the altar on December 29, 1170.
The 2m work uses antique iron nails from the cathedral’s repaired south east roof to construct a membrane outlining the space of a floating body.
Gormley, who won the Turner Prize in 1994, is best known for his works such as the Angel Of The North and Another Place on Crosby beach.
Speaking about Transport, Gormley, 60, said: “We are all the temporary inhabitants of a body. I hope to have evoked this in the most direct way possible.”
