Burning man

Antony Gormley’s Waste Man was built over a period of six weeks in the summer of 2006 in Margate, UK where it was then gloriously burnt to crisp in 32 minutes.

For the artist “this work was a collective body…made from the raw materials of people’s home lives – beds, tables, dining chairs, toilet seats, desks, pianos and rubbish (all the limiting baggage of the householder), transformed into energy.”
