Antony Gormley installation at Wells Cathedral

26 August 2021Visit website

Wells Cathedral is pleased to announce that Antony Gormley’s new sculpture titled DOUBT (2020) will be installed on the West Front of the Cathedral on Thursday 26th August 2021. The West Front of Wells Cathedral exhibits many renditions of the human form; from Old Testament stories to resurrection; kings and bishops to angels and apostles. Cast in iron and just over life-size, the sculpture will be loaned by the Artist and occupy Niche 338 below the North-West tower of the Cathedral.

Of the work, Gormley has said: “I am very aware of the paradox of placing an object called DOUBT on the facade of a building devoted to belief, but it seems to me that doubting, interrogating, questioning, are all part of belief. For me doubt can be a positive force and the imaginative engine of future possibility.”
