Angel of the North (1998), Antony Gormley.
Built at Hartlepool Steel Fabrications Ltd, the use of steel reminds us of the North’s industrial heritage, especially now when steel work is disappearing from the area once more.
A distinctive and well-loved landmark, this is a collection of images (collected from social media) taken from vehicles as they pass the Angel.
These were then transformed into various objects to showcase the position that the statue has gained in the psychogeography of the North of England.
The images were produced as 6×4 photographs, the size used for ‘snapshots’ and on the back of the images were any comments the image maker made and their name.
This has already been show at Palace Arts Gallery in Redcar and Settle Down in Newcastle.
