Men of Steel
"Inside Australia, 2002" by English artist, Antony Gormley (1950) at the National Gallery of Victoria, is a crowd pleaser. The row of black stainless steel figures were a gift to the gallery and they are currently taking pride of place, on display in the entrance foyer, in front of the gallery's very interesting water wall. I particularly liked the interplay of the inside figures with the security guard on the outside of the waterwall; and the way gallery patrons interacted with the figures.
