“Hero Wall” is inspired by Julie Rrap(b.1950) , one of Australia’s leading feminist artist, artwork Transposition: The Invisible Body(1988, Sydney) currently on view in Gallery 06 at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide. Exploring ways in which the viewer is implicated in historical images, Playford students selected an image of their hero to collectively display as a modular piece. The Hero Wall encourages all students to add and takeaway portraits of people important to them by contributing to this dynamically evolving community artwork. Launched on 20 June 2018 in celebration of World Refugee Day, this work celebrates the values of having heroes, role models and daring to dream.
