Event Horizon By Antony Gormley

He has placed 31 life-size body “naked man” sculptures on rooftops around Central and Western districts, including the tops of St George's Building and City Hall, and at ground level at The Plaza LKF. Titled 'Event Horizon', the exhibition aims to make art accessible to the public, and examines the relationship between humans and their environments. Shaped in the body form of the artist himself, the art pieces encourage passerby to "look up and look again at familiar places in a new way." They will remain in the city for the next six months so watch out ... just don't forget to look where you're going! When: NOW - May 18, 2016 Visit the website for more information
