Gormley in Rio

Antony Gormley is up to his old tricks again. Thirty-one iron casts of his naked self have appeared all over Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian media call them "suicidal statues". As usual, worried residents have been calling the police. One joker has adorned an iron willy with a used condom. That's the stuff. Take the Mickey. Gormley's exhibition Still Being opened in the Bank of Brazil Cultural Centre (CLICK). It includes Critical Mass II (detail above). CLICK for a BBC News video.
