Antony Gormley: Breaking bread

The artist talks about the creation of his sculpture Bed 1980-1

We break bread with Antony Gormley in his studio, as the artist talks about Bed 1980-1. The sculpture is made from 600 loaves of Mother's Pride bread, minus those he ate along the way!

Gormley talks about how he was influenced by a generation of American artists from Carl Andre and Richard Serra to Sol LeWitt and Robert Smithson, and how his Bed is 'a meditation on the fundamental processes of both art and life.'
