Lucy Sparrow rang myself, Witek and Helen Carlton with a proposition: with winter weather rolling in, the Angel of the North was bound to be getting cold. Lucy decided we should address this potential crisis while also playfully probing the non-participatory nature of the sculpture. She went to work, with the help of a few friends from the Bath Spa University knitting group, to create a 50-foot scarf to drape over the wings. The cold angel project is a subtle gesture toward artistic palimpsest, a way of layering up Gormley’s rather stark vision with a more warm and welcoming strata that carries a simple message – feel free to play here.
