Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay artist Dennis Golding’s practice critically interrogates political, social and cultural representations of Aboriginal history. With an inclination towards superhero symbolism, Golding’s work empowers contemporary Aboriginal cultural identity and frees it from colonial narratives. As the artist in residence for Solid Ground, Golding worked with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at Alexandria Park Community School to create 100 superhero capes depicting visual representations of connections to Country, memory, heritage and lived experience.
