Sculptures by Antony Gormley have been installed at five Landmark Trust sites across the UK in celebration of their 50th anniversary, with each work conceived in direct response to each location.

"The Landmark Trust’s 50th anniversary is an occasion to think and feel the nature of our species, its history and future, and its relationship to the huge biodiversity of living beings that exist on the surface of this extraordinary blue planet." Antony Gormley

Unveiled at a special celebratory event in early May 2015, the LAND installation at Kimmeridge Bay in Dorset is freely available to view until May 2016.

"It was important to find sites in which the work would not simply become an unnecessary addition but where it could be a catalyst and take on a richer or deeper engagement with the site. Each of the five works made for this commission tries to identify a human space in space at large. In searching for positions to site the five body-form sculptures, I have looked for locations that are not simply conventional places for sculpture (the grotto, the glade, the lawn, the niche or on the axis of an avenue of trees). I have found the most potent places to be where the horizon is clearly visible and that has often meant the coast. So, I have been drawn to places where the vertical nature of the sculpture can act against the relatively constant horizon of the sea" Antony Gormley
