Artist's Description

Lake Ballard is also a significant part of the region’s salt lake system. It is a breeding habitat for many species of water fowl, as well as banded stilt which feeds on a special type of brine shrimp that only hatches after heavy rain. It should be pointed out that this is a very rare occurrence, having only happened 7 times in 215 years at Lake Ballard.

Antony Gormley Sculptures are dotted across the lake complex. The artwork is a collection of 51 steel sculptures standing over ten square kilometres apart, on the salt plain of Lake Ballard. The sculptures travelled 780 kms from the foundry in Perth to the site on Lake Ballard, and it took a team of 18 volunteers 4 days to install all 51 sculptures. The sculptures are representative of people living in Menzies.
