Another Place

“Two of sculptor Antony Gormley’s iron men, which normally stand on a beach wearing nothing but rust and barnacles, have been given a multi-coloured make-over by a guerrilla knitwear artist.

Part of Gormley’s Another Place series, the life-size figures have been on Crosby beach in Merseyside since 2005.

The head-to-toe crocheted outfits were added by New York-based artist Olek.

“I feel that barnacles provide the best cover-up, but this is very impressive substitute!” Gormley said.
