Winchester Cathedral

The sculpture, Sound II, in the North isle of the crypt under Winchester Cathedral in Winchester, England is normally calf-to-knee deep in water. Note the waterlines on the camera-right wall. The artist, Anthony Gormley designed the sculpture for that environment.

Winchester Cathedral
3 May to 31 July 2007

This major exhibition of contemporary sculpture will include work by Darren Almond, David Batchelor, Ian Dawson, John Gibbons, Pilar Beltran Lahoz, Marc Quinn and Turner Prize winner Rachel Whiteread. The works have been selected for specific locations within the cathedral and although none have been commissioned for the site the location plays a significant role in how the works and building are interpreted.
