Former Victoria College pupil Andy Nowacki is not saying exactly what he will be doing between 9 pm and 10 pm as part of the Anthony Gormley public art experiment. However, he has revealed that it will involve his body and some spray paint.
The 24-year-old, who is studying for a PhD in geophysics at Bristol University, said: ‘I don’t usually do this sort of thing, but it is a chance to be involved in something which I can look back on in years to come and to have a part in a major piece of public art.
‘I heard about it on the radio several months ago when it was being advertised. I am a bit of a fan of the artist Anthony Gormley and have been to see his other work. It sounded like a bit of a laugh.
‘It’s an interesting project and people will either be sceptical or enthusiastic about it. It is just worth checking out what people are getting up to up there. It is supposed to be a portrait of British life.’
Andy says his parents – Ray and Jennie Nowacki, of St Clement – are also excited about his hour of fame and several of his mates and his girlfriend will be there to support.
