About the Event
BlueSky offers you a day trip to see Australia’s largest outdoor gallery on Lake Ballard called INSIDE AUSTRALIA.
The Lake Ballard salt lake holds 51 sculptures by Turner Prize-winning artist Antony Gormley which are all derived from laser scans of Menzies inhabitants. Antony Gormley used three-dimensional scans to map each body with half a million digital coordinates. Cross sections were then taken throughout the body, reduced by two thirds and the contours connected finishing with what the sculptor refers to as an ‘insider’. They are then cast in an alloy containing molybdenum, vanadium and titanium, materials that are found in the Achaean rock of Western Australia.
After enjoying some art and the stunning lake, we will have lunch at the iconic Menzies Hotel (self purchased).
- The trip is approxmiately 2.5 hours each way but you will get to enjoy the incredible Goldfields landscapes.
