James Turrell’s elemental beauty at National Gallery Australia

I have never seen James Turrell’s beautiful installation, Within without, until last weekend when I was ¬†catching the very last day of the monumental Fred Williams show. Turns out it’s been there a while!


In this segment from Art Nation, Fenella talks to Turrell and takes us on a tour of this magnificent, simple and moving installation. The ideal time to visit is Dawn or Dusk, when the light changes would make it a totally magical space. I saw it in the middle of a sunny day and it was stunning just at that time. If you haven’t seen it, seek it out next time you’re down in Canberra. Meanwhile you can see the segment here:
