Antony Gormley, Inside Australia, 2003.

Cast alloy of iron, molybdenum, iridium, vanadium and titanium. 51 elements based on 51 inhabitants of Menzies, Western Australia. Commission for 50th Perth International Arts Festival, Western Australia, 2003. Permanent installation, Lake Ballard, Menzies, Western Australia.

Join us for a rare screening of ‘Inside Australia’, the documentary showcasing Antony Gormley’s 51-figure installation in Menzies, Western Australia – followed by a talk with director and anthropologist Hugh Brody.

On a vast salt lake, Antony Gormley embarked on a sculptural installation near the small outback town of Menzies in remote Western Australia. One of his most ambitious works, Inside Australia is composed of 51 sculptures which stand silently in this inhospitable place and celebrate the community of Menzies.

The documentary captures the physical and creative journey undertaken by both Gormley and the local community as they embark upon one of the most ambitious art projects of recent times.

Following the screening, join anthropologist and director of the documentary, Hugh Brody for a 30 minute talk as he considers how geology, anthropology and humankind’s connection with the land are represented in Gormley’s work.
