White Cube and Antony Gormley: Together
Sales enquiries by email to

The psychological as well as the physical damage caused by the Covid-19 crisis is now well known, and Antony Gormley has chosen this week, which is Mental Health Awareness Week, to launch a limited edition print to support both mental health awareness charities and food banks. Together presents a series of six silhouetted figures originally created out of a single pool of coffee. “These open silhouettes suggest human spaces in space. They touch each other; the touch of others, so important to us, is denied during this time of isolation”, Gormley says, who feels that the work’s genesis from a single puddle of coffee “runs through the bodies and, like blood, pools, coagulates and dries.” The photopolymer gravure print comes in an edition of 250 priced at £2,000 each. All proceeds go to One to One Project, The Trussell Trust and Together for Mental Wellbeing, three charities which support people suffering the physical, psychological and emotional consequences of lockdown.

In Sickness and in Health: James Hyman Gallery
Online exhibition here

To also coincide with Mental Health Awareness week James Hyman Gallery has opened In Sickness and In Health, a three-artist online exhibition that addresses physical and mental wellbeing with 10% of sales going to Mind, the mental health charity. The show of work by Joe Spence, Heather Agyepong and Anna Fox runs until 19 June and was originally intended for the cancelled Paris Photo New York Fair in March, however it has taken on new resonance in the present global crisis. Prices range from £2,200 for an individual work by Heather Agypong to £14,000 for a rare and unique example from Jo Spence’s Phototherapy series from the 1980s.
