Helen Malone at Australian War Memorial

Helen Malone's artist book - The Battle Within - is on display at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra for six months.  It is situated in a commemorative/reflective space on the way out of the Memorial.
 
The book deals with the effects of war on returned servicemen and the structure of the book reflects an inward post-traumatic state.
