Nazi artwork to stir rally debate

A NOBBY Creek artist’s interpretation of Repco Rally Australia with Nazis and road kill is a commentary on the loss of democracy and a feeling of helplessness, the No Rally Group says.

Chris Degenhardt’s controversial painting, titled Invasion, is scheduled to go up on the walls of the Murwillumbah Public Library next week as part of an exhibition.

The No Rally Group, which Mr Degenhardt supports, said the artwork was sure to incite debate.

“Art often addresses contentious issues and provokes reflection and debate. Mr Degenhardt’s work will certainly do that,” No Rally Group spokeswoman Andrea Vickers said.

“No Rally Group doesn’t have a position on the painting. It’s up to individuals on how they respond to it.”

Rally Australia chairman Alan Evans said the work was a misrepresentation, as the only people at risk during the rally were the rally drivers.

Ms Vickers said the group disputed that claim.
