The Caller



This installation has prominent place near the entrance to the Art Gallery of Western Australia. I have often walked past hurrying between the city centre and the car park at the Art Gallery. The work stands talls and dominant in the plaza area of the Perth Cultural Centre.

It was erected on 26 June 1998 on International United Nations Day in dedication to torture victims and survivors. The plaque beside the statue acknowledges Gerherd Marcks 1889-1981 for Der Rufer (The Caller). The installation was cast in bronze by in 1981 by Giesserie Barth in Berlin.

  4. Great job Rae. It's amazing how much a cropped image can say so much more than the full picture. Great tinting.

  6. Wonderful find. I love the color and point of view, and the strong framing. The monument is a beautiful tribute.
