Waldemar Januszczak presents his definitive account of his all-time favourite art-form – sculpture – in this new three-part series. Stressing the global primacy of sculpture, Januszczak travels to the most spectacular sculptural locations in the world – from Peru to Nigeria, Easter Island to Japan – and visits some of the most revered contemporary sculptors, including Antony Gormley, Marc Quinn, James Turrell and the Chapman brothers. This first episode traces the representation of women in sculpture from the prehistoric Venus of Willendorf, to Marc Quinn’s representation of Alison Lapper Pregnant.
