Momart Ltd is pleased to announce we have been selected to work on LAND, a unique project in collaboration with sculptor Antony Gormley and a centrepiece of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Landmark Trust next year.
LAND comprises five distinct life-size standing sculptures by Antony Gormley cast in iron, which will be installed at five Landmark Trust sites personally selected by the artist: Martello Tower, Aldeburgh, Suffolk; Clavell Tower, Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset; Saddell Bay, Mull of Kintyre, Scotland; Lengthsman’s Cottage, Lowsonford, Warwickshire; and Lundy Island, Bristol Channel.
The five vertical body-forms will add a point of focus to each location, being thoughtful to their setting, encouraging visitors to contemplate the specific elemental conditions of each site, and in the case of the four coastal locations, the different qualities of the North Sea, the English Channel, the Kilbrannan Sound, and the Bristol Channel.
The Landmark Trust, which next year will be celebrating their 5oth anniversary, has rescued and restored almost 200 extraordinary buildings that would otherwise have been lost and given them a safe, secure future by letting them out for holidays to pay for their maintenance. To celebrate their half a century of existence and activity, Landmark sought to do something for everyone, not just for the people who stay in their buildings each year. LAND is the result.

Momart is proud to be working on this exciting and challenging project, which will be installed by May 2015 and will be in place until May 2016. LAND is Antony Gormley's only solo outdoor installation in the UK in 2015. The sculptures will have full public access and be free for everyone to enjoy.
