Down to Margate

In the corner of Kent in which I live there is not an overabundance of arts and culture. Galleries are thin on the ground, most of the cinemas show rubbish films and decent bands seldom play here. So it was refreshing when one of the UK's foremost artists, the sculptor Antony Gormley, creator of the Angel of the North, came to the area and built a colossal effigy of a man out of old junk ...


then set fire to it ...




It was quite a spectacle. The Waste Man, as it was called, was part of a film being made with local people called The Margate Exodus. More here.
