Waldemar Januszczak has been described as, "a passionate art lover, art critic and writer. His presentation style is casual but informed, enthusiastic, evocative and humorous. He bumbles about on our TV screens, doing for art what David Attenborough has done for the natural world," and “he makes it utterly accessible and understandable."
In this series he presents a definitive account of his favourite art-form, sculpture. An art form that has acquired a lot more fans in the UK in recent years, with large scale works like Anthony Gormley’s “Angel of the North” becoming “must visit” locations. Januszczak travels the globe to see the most spectacular sculptural locations, meets some of the most revered contemporary sculptors, and tries to demonstrate why the art-form will always be at the heart of our cultural lives.
Episode 1 "Women"
In the first episode, Waldemar looks at how women are represented in sculpture, from the Venus of Willendorf to Marc Quinn's acclaimed and controversial “Alison Lapper Pregnant,” in Piccadilly Circus.
Episode 2 "Leaders"
Waldemar Januszczak looks at how leaders aim to leave a lasting visual legacy. Lenin, in reality an inconspicuous figure, was recreated in sculptures after his death as a dominant presence. At Mount Rushmore, four US presidents are carved into the face of the mountain. The site is controversial for many Native Americans who regard it as their land.
Episode 3 "Land Art"
Waldemar Januszczak takes a road trip across North and South America to look at some stunning examples of his favourite art form, including the outdoor sculptures of the Spiral Jetty and the Sun Tunnels in the USA, plus the ancient Inca settlement on Machu Picchu. He also visits the amazing Roden Crater, a 30-year project in a volcano in Arizona.
