Hansard Report March 2003 “The artwork, On Occupied Territory, which highly regarded South Australian artist Margaret Wroth was commissioned to produce, is without doubt an outstanding piece of high quality public art.
Public art can be described as the practice of contemporary art outside the traditional gallery system. This form of art can be seen by a much wider and more varied audience than that seen by the typical art gallery visitor….an art form that has no direct class or social barriers.
Margaret Worth ….has achieved all this and much more. Through her work ‘On Occupied Territory’ she has been able to incorporate a recognition and a respect for the links that exist between our environment, heritage and community.”
