Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes with Antony Gormley

Walking through the galleries this morning, I happened upon a very charming crowd of children mesmerized by Antony Gormley‘s spiky sculpture Aperture XIII (2010) and even more mesmerized by the artist himself, who engaged them in an impromptu discussion about what they saw (a tree with a sun for a head! a satellite exploding around a brain!)
