The Gormley ‘In Another Place’ sculptures are famous on Crosby beach, children play amongst them and occasionally tourists and art lovers interact with them, but when the tide marches in they remain, motionless staring out to sea with only a horizon filled with wind turbines for company. I doubt Gormley’s original intention was to highlight climate reality, but the image of the figure staring out to sea at the turbines is a powerful one nonetheless.
