Description
Citipointe Christian College is a primary and high school based in Brisbane. The school commissioned Gillie and Marc to design an Anzac memorial in time for Remembrance Day. The artists create a boy holding an official military hat as a way to pay respects and represent the loss of life without being too literal or traumatising for the students. The artists felt that the younger school children in particular might find the boy more relatable. The school said the sculpture ‘created a real buzz among the students’ with some even trying to guess if the artwork was modelled off one of their peers. It was also an effective way to introduce the topic of war and conflict in an engaging and approachable way. Paying Respects is dedicated to remember all Australians who have served their country in the armed forces in wartime, or with peacekeeping. It’s the ultimate story of human selflessness and bravery.
