Title: Deterrence  
Artist: Rev. John Tansey
Materials: Wood, Steel, Barbed Wire

The cross in the Christian tradition was used by the Roman imperial power as a tool of deterrence, and as a political weapon to reinforce their power over an occupied state.

Jesus was crucified due to his persistence in acting and speaking against an oppressive system. This points to a theology of the cross that sees it not simply as a symbol of generalised suffering, or even solidarity with those suffering but also as a symbol of political resistance against injustice.

This work reflects on the way the cross was used in the past as a tool for political expedience, fear, intimidation and the way the Australian governments are continuing to treat men, women and children refugees offshore, in Australian Centres or on life damaging Temporary Protection Visas.
