Antony Gormley knighted in New Year Honours List 2014
The acclaimed sculptor leads the honours for the
arts and entertainment world
Antony Gormley, the celebrated sculptor
whose works include "The Angel of the North", has been awarded a
knighthood in the New Year Honours List.
The 63-year-old, who won the
Turner Prize in 1994 and was appointed OBE in 1997, said his knighthood was “a
good thing” for the art form.
He said: “I think it’s a good
thing for sculpture. I think it’s a feeling that these sort of awards went to
people that have served the country in obvious ways militarily, politically or
industrially. And now they also go to people that have opened people’s minds
and this reflects that shift.”
