Like a lot of Americans, I first heard about Antony Gormley when he orchestrated the "Fourth Plinth" performance/stunt/insanity. And then he got a lot of New Yorkers upset.
And now he's taken over The Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Taken over. He had all the work from one gallery removed and 85% from another. He had floors raised and moved. He rearranged and changed and made it a completely new space, which is fun because The Hermitage is one of the most imposing spaces around.
What's next for Gormely? I can't wait.
