LAND

An art installation for all to mark Landmark’s 50th year.

Sculptures by Antony Gormley were installed at five Landmark sites across the UK and were freely available to view until May 2016. Each work was conceived in direct response
to each location and the entire project captured the imagination of many people. Sadly LAND was only temporary and the sculptures are being taken down gradually. Most of the works will remain in the collection of the Artist, to be considered for future loans and projects.

NEWS UPDATE 1 June 2016:

The sculpture on the tip of Lundy Island was removed earlier today.

NEWS UPDATE 19 May 2016:

The deinstallation of LAND has begun. The sculpture at the Martello Tower has now gone as has the one at Lengthsman's Cottage. The rest will follow when the schedule allows.

NEWS UPDATE January 2016:

The Kimmeridge Bay sculpture has come down in heavy seas over the Christmas period. We are taking steps to recover the work imminently, and sadly this looks like the end of the road for the LAND installation at Kimmeridge.

"The Landmark Trust’s 50th anniversary is an occasion to think and feel the nature of our species, its history and future, and its relationship to the huge biodiversity of living beings that exist on the surface of this extraordinary blue planet."

LAND - an art installation for our 50th year

The Landmark Trust exists to save endangered important buildings and to enable people to inhabit them. For our 50th anniversary we wanted to celebrate this relationship between people, places and time in a new way.

No contemporary artist has been more eloquent and imaginative in considering such questions than Antony Gormley and it is thanks to his support and enthusiasm for Landmark, together with some very generous dedicated donations, that this project has come into being.
