The Sculpture 100

The Sculpture 100 is a journey through one hundred public sculptures made across one hundred years. In 1905, Thomas Brock and Aston Webb began work on their final grand celebration of Victoria Regina, the Victoria Memorial, at one end of London’s Mall. A century later, Marc Quinn‘s Alison Lapper Pregnant sits triumphant on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square. This is a film about these, and ninety-eight other distinctive, significant, quirky, glorious public sculptures made for England in the century in between.

Touring through England’s great outdoor museum of public sculpture, this unique and beautifully-photographed film features works by, among many others, Jacob Epstein, Eric Gill, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Richard Deacon, Anish Kapoor and Rachel Whiteread.

Some of the featured artworks are famous, but many more are over-looked, and a few are falling apart from neglect. Interviews with artists, including Antony Gormley, Anthony Caro and Tony Cragg, provide context as the sculptures tell their own stories of patronage, controversy and celebration.
