Antony Gormley, the artist obsessed with his own body, has graced us with another version of himself, this time crouched on the new Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair. Not content with just showing us his behind, with ‘Room’, we have now have the chance to be inside it – if, that is, you’ve got the £2,500 a night it’ll cost you to climb the stair to the bijou, timber-lined luxury of the 4m2, 10m high space. I’ve always thought Gormley was slightly up himself, but I’m mildly surprised to find that, potentially, I could be too!
