Anthony Gormley's Inside Australia

Prints of Australia’s largest outdoor art installation gallery at Lake Ballard

 

Australia's largest outdoor gallery is located at Lake Ballard, near Menzies in Western Australia’s Goldfields. It’s the creation of Turner Prize-winning artist Antony Gormley, called INSIDE AUSTRALIA. Invited by Sean Doran, Artistic Director of the Perth International Arts Festival at the time, to make a work to celebrate the festival’s 50th anniversary in 2003, Gormley accepted the challenge saying “I just wanted somewhere with an absolutely flat, more or less 360 degree horizon. Lake Ballard was chosen as it's an extraordinary lake 70 miles long and 30 miles wide, with this sodium crust that makes everything stand out absolutely clearly. The landscape is spectacular and it's in the middle of what’s called the Yilgarn Craton, which is one of the oldest bits of the surface of the earth. In December 2002, after months of preparation, Anthony Gormley supervised the installation of 51 metal figures at Lake Ballard.

Our pictures are available as a range of Wall Art and Photo Gifts including Framed Prints, Posters, Canvas Prints, Jigsaw Puzzles and other Photo Gifts - all professionally made and delivered to your door quickly and securely
