Description - Antony Gormley by Antony Gormley
Antony Gormley Inside Australia showcases Turner Prize-winning artist Gormley's stunning 51-statue installation on Lake Ballard, a 10 square kilometre dry salt lake in a remote region of Western Australia. Photographs, maps and drawings present the entire creative process in detail, while commentaries explain its different stages and place the work in the wider context of Gormley's sculptural oeuvre. The centrepiece of the book is a photographic section showing the figures standing sentinel on the parched salt plains.

Author Biography - Antony Gormley
Antony Gormley has, since the early 1980s, used his own body to make sculptures which explore the human experience of being in the world. He is perhaps best known for his huge sculpture, The Angel of the North, in Gateshead. He won the Turner Prize in 1994 for Field for the British Isles, a roomful of some 40,000 terracotta figures, and continues to exhibit widely.
