Art Despite the mishap when I visited, it's absolute tragedy that Antony Gormley's Another Place is leaving Crosby Beach. It seems to be a decision made to keep happy a few dozen people who haven't taken the time to appreciate it in the face of half a million people (so far) who have. I understand that there'll be people in New York who would like to see it there, but like Gormley's Field these figures need not be unique - new objects can be made and shipped anywhere. Gormley himself believes that they've in an excellent place here and are giving the area a character it didn't have before. Shame.
