Field for the British Isles
Two clay figures from the Turner Prize winning work. One measuring 135mm the other 85mm.
Field for the British Isles was made by around one hundred people working with the artist during one week in September 1993. On any one day, there were between fifty and sixty people including children, parents and grandparents working together, side by side.
An estimated 30 tonnes of clay was needed. The working procedure was simple: each person needed a board on which to place a lump of clay; a small pot of water and a pencil to make the eye holes; a foam cushion to sit on and enough floor-space to be able to 'plant' out our figures in rows of ten (for ease of counting). Everyone was encouraged to find their own way of making, following these guidelines: the pieces were to be hand-sized and easy to hold, the eyes were to be deep and close, and the proportions of the head to the body roughly correct.
At the end of the week all 40,000 figures then made the journey from St Helens to Liverpool, in two lorry loads, ready for 'planting out' in the gallery.
Gormley was awarded the Turner prize for the work in 1994.
