Mud + water = reflection

HOST is a piece that Gormley initial created in 1991, in a disused US jail in Charleston, using mud and seawater from the harbour. At the 2019 exhibition in London, the piece was recreated by flooding one of the rooms in the Royal Academy with seawater, and adding clay from Buckinghamshire.
